Mack, Willard
(1878-1934)
   Born in Morrisburg, Ontario, Canada, Charles Willard McLaughlin graduated from Georgetown University and began a newspaper career, but joined the Guy Hich-man Players as an actor. Later he formed his own stock company in South Bend, Indiana. In San Francisco, he was leading man with the Alcazar Theatre's stock company. He went into vaudeville, performing his own sketches, some of which he expanded into full-length plays. The 1910s and 1920s brought him considerable success as a playwright, and he continued to act in some of his own works. His plays include Kick In (1914), So Muchfor So Much (1914), Tiger Rose (1917), The Big Chance (1918, with Grant Morris), Near Santa Barbara (1921), Canary Dutch (1925), Honor Be Damned (1927), and many others.
