Actor, theatrical manager. He was
the son of renowned Shakespearean actor Junius Brutus Booth Sr. and elder brother of actors Edwin and John Wilkes, the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln. An ardent unionist and supporter of Abraham Lincoln, he nonetheless suffered villification for his brother's crime, but recovered his career in theater. He was manager of the Boston Theater company and built and managed summer theater in Manchester-by-the-Sea. He appeared on stage together with Edwin and John Wilkes only once in "Julius Caesar."
