George Bernard Shaw
Aug, 1911
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950) was a famous Irish playwright. Clarence and Ruby Darrow traveled to Europe in 1903 for their honeymoon. They met Shaw in London and Darrow and Shaw got along well. Shaw later wrote that he instinctively liked Darrow "perhaps because he is a genuine noble savage--with that cheekbone he wants only a few feathers and a streak of ochre to be a perfect Mohican . . . ."
