Harris, Henry B.


Harris, Henry B.
(1866-1912)
   The St. Louis-born manager Henry B. Harris, son of William Harris Sr., started out as a program boy at Boston's Howard Atheneum. He rose from treasurer to business manager of Boston's Columbia Theatre in three years. He became an independent manager in 1901. Among the important plays he produced were Strongheart (1905) and The Lion and the Mouse (1905). He managed such stars as Amelia Bingham, May Irwin, and others. His Variety obituary (27 April 1912) notes that "the children in Stageland lost the best friend they ever had," because of his fair treatment of the little people in his dealings with the big people.
