BENHAM, ARTHUR:

Dramatic author; born 1875; died at Brighton, Eng., Sept. 8, 1895. He was a playwright of considerable promise, and was the author of two plays, "The County" and "The Awakening"—the latter produced for a short run at the Garrick, and the former at Terry's Theater—when he was only twenty years old. He died of consumption when scarcely past his twentieth year. His sister was the actress Estelle Burney, who collaborated in his plays, and was his tender nurse during his long illness.
