Hobart, George Vere

Hobart, George Vere
   The prolific playwright, born at Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, was first employed as a telegraph operator. United Press put him in charge of a telegraph key in Cumberland, Maryland, which became his hometown. There he moved into journalism and worked his way up to the Baltimore Daily News, where he could indulge his flair for writing character sketches. His Dinkelspiel sketches regaled newspaper readers for 16 years. From 1900, Hobart devoted himself to writing for the theatre, including lyrics for his musical librettos. His many legitimate plays include Wildfire (1907, with George H. Broadhurst), Experience (1914), and Our Mrs. McChesney (1915, with Edna Ferber). His numerous musicals include Sally in Our Alley (1902) and revue skits for several editions of the Ziegfeld Follies.
