John B. Howard


1841 - 1895

Theatre impresario and actor. Howard trained in Edinburgh under William Murray at the Theatre Royal, which once stood in Leith Street, but was destroyed by fire in 1946. He formed a partnership with Fred Wyndham in 1883 to run the Royal Lyceum Theatre, which became the theatre management company Howard & Wyndham Ltd. in 1895. They also leased the Theatre Royal in Edinburgh, the Royalty Theatre and Theatre Royal Glasgow. Only weeks after the formation of the company, Howard died from stroke in his office.
