John Sidney Woollett

Birth11 AUG 1845
Death8 JAN 1917
Aged: 71.4 years
John Sidney Woollett was known as Sidney Woollett. He was raised by his parents where his father was an English Barrister and so he was trained in public speaking from an early age.  He went to America by vessel when he was young. During the trip, he amused the passengers by acting out Shakesperian plays. He had a talent for portraying each character precisely (like today's actors). More than once, he was guided to take up this "elocutionist" profession.
He did so and came to fame in the Newport, R I area by reciting Longfellow's poems. He continued to act out his Shakespearean favorites also
