T. Edward Hambleton

T. Edward Hambleton, the courtly but determined man who ran New York's Phoenix Theater from 1953 to 1983, died Dec. 18, 2005, in Baltimore, the New York Times reported. He was 94 and lived in Cockeysville, Maryland. He was born in that state on Feb. 11, 1911, to a wealthy banking family. But Mr. Hambleton wanted nothing of the banking life and, after graduating from Yale in 1935, set out on a life in the theatre, never looking back.
