Stevens, Ashton


Stevens, Ashton
(1872-1951)
   San Francisco-born drama critic Ashton Stevens began his writing career in his hometown for the News-Letter, and other local publications, in 1894. After three years as critic for the New York Evening Journal, Stevens moved to Chicago where he became a fixture, first on the Herald and Examiner (1910-1932) and then the Herald-American (1932-1951). Known as an exacting critic, Stevens was as critical of audiences and his fellow critics as he was of the qualities of Chicago theatre productions and touring shows.
