Arnold Daly

Daly, Arnold (dāˈlē) [key], 1875–1927, American actor, b. Brooklyn, N.Y. He first appeared on the stage in 1892. Inspired by Richard Mansfield's production of The Devil's Disciple (1897–98), Daly determined to present Shaw on the American stage, and in 1903 he came into prominence when he played successfully in Candida. His production of Mrs. Warren's Profession (1905) caused an uproar and the arrest of the principal actors, but they were immediately acquitted. The following year Daly toured with Arms and the Man and The Man of Destiny.
