Henry Herman (1832–1894)

Herman, Henry. An English novelist and playwright; born in Alsace in 1832; died in London, Sept. 24, 1894. He was collaborator with Henry Arthur Jones in the popular melodrama ‘The Silver King’ (1882), and with W. G. Wills wrote ‘Claudian,’ a classic drama, both of which were features of Wilson Barrett’s repertoire for many seasons. His other plays include: ‘Jeanne Dubarry’ (1875), and ‘Slight Mistakes’ (1876). As a writer of fiction he will be best remembered for ‘A Leading Lady,’ ‘Hearts of Gold and Hearts of Steel,’ and other stories; and ‘One Traveler Returns’ and ‘He Fell Among Thieves,’ written with D.
