Personal Quote:

I am proud of my ancestry, and that it was of the theater and the American theater too, but I am far prouder of the fact that neither my father nor my grandfather handed down a joke. And it is my ambition to follow their example in this respect. Each of us wanted and wants all his jokes in his own generation if not entirely of his own generating.

Trivia:

Introduced Babe Ruth to Claire Merritt Hodgson (then Claire Hodgson) before a New York Yankees-Washington Senators game in Washington. Hodgson was on tour with Barton at the time with the Broadway-bound musical "Dew Drop Inn". See more »
