Harlowe Randall Hoyt
Harlowe Randall Hoyt was born in Beaver Dam. A member of the Babcock family that ran the local Concert Hall. Harlowe was fascinated by the theater. The early stock companies that traveled throughout the country appearing in small towns would spur Harlowe to seek a career in the theater. He acted in show companies, traveled as an advance man and wrote scripts for Edisons first silent movie productions. He was a playwright, author, newspaper reporter and drama critic. His book "Town Hall Tonight," is considered the quintessential text examining small town theater of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. The book is still used as the course text at many major Universities including NYU.
