Compton Mackenzie

Compton Mackenzie was born in West Hartlepool, England, into a theatrical family of Mackenzies, but many of whose members used Compton as their stage surname, starting with his grandfather Henry Compton, a well-known Shakespearean actor of the Victorian era. His father, Edward Compton, was an actor and theatre company manager; his sister, Fay Compton, starred in many of J. M. Barrie’s plays, including Peter Pan. He was educated at St Paul’s School and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he graduated with a degree in modern history. He died in 1972.
