Metcalfe, James Stetson


Metcalfe, James Stetson
(1858-1927)
   Born in Buffalo, New York, the critic graduated from Yale University in 1879. He held prestigious positions in the newspaper and magazine publishing world, but gained notoriety in 1905 when the Theatrical Syndicate responded to his reviews by preventing him from attending plays. Barred from 47 Manhattan theatres, Metcalfe took the matter to court, which resulted in a ruling that no ticket buyer could be refused admission.
