Alexander Woolcott


American journalist and tale-teller, a drama critic and a regular contributor to New Yorker magazine. He served as a radio broadcaster from 1929-1940 known as, "The Town Crier." He was notorious for his unusual personality and sharp tongue. He earned a reputation for the play that was based on his life, "The Man Who Came To Dinner," in which he played the lead.

Woolcott was one of four panelists on a New York radio discussion on 1/23/1943 when his failing heart grabbed his full attention. As he was helped from the studio, the heart attack was followed by a cerebral hemorrhage and he became paralyzed on the left side. By the time he reached the hospital, he was gone.
