W. J. MacQueen-Pope

Walter James MacQueen-Pope

(11 April 1888 – 27 June 1960)

English theatre historian and publicist.

From a theatrical family which could be traced back to contemporaries of Shakespeare, he was in management for the first part of his career, but switched to publicity, in which field he became well-known.

He was a prolific writer of books about the theatre, and in particular its more glamorous aspects. He also described himself as an “authority on pantomime”.
