Hobart Bosworth was an actor, director, and writer from the 1900s to the 1940s. One of his early claims to fame was touring the United States in a stage play adaptation of "The Sea Wolf", Jack London's famous story, in which he played Wolf Larsen! He was born Hobart Van Zandt Bosworth in 1867, in Marietta, Ohio. He was a direct descendant of Miles Standish and John and Priscilla Alden on his father's side and of New York's Van Zandt family, the first Dutch settlers to land in the New World, on his mother's side. Bosworth was always proud of his heritage, and he apparently worked that into many of his movies. Some of his movies include: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Abraham Lincoln, The Secret of Treasure Island, and King of the Sierras. He passed away in 1943 at the age of 76.
