About Augustin Duncan

He was a U.S. actor and director active in New York and London during the entire first half of the 20th century.

Born in 1873, the eldest of four children of Joseph Charles Duncan, a banker, and Mary Isadora Gray, he was the brother of Isadora Duncan and Raymond Duncan.

Duncan made his stage debut in 1893 in San Francisco, and toured for seven years before appearing in New York in 1900, then continuing in increasingly important roles in New York and London. In 1919 he was a member of the Theatre Guild, and his performance and direction helped give the new company its first success. After he separated from the Guild, Duncan directed and acted in such productions as The Cradle Song (1921), The Detour (1921), The First Man (1922), Hell‐Bent for Heaven (1924), and Juno and the Paycock (1926). He also directed plays in which he did not appear, such as Kempy (1922). In the late 1920s his eyesight started to fail. By the early 1930s Duncan was blind. He continued to perform, playing John of Gaunt and the Ghost in Maurice Evans's productions of Richard II (1937) and Hamlet (1938). He made his last appearance as the Father in Lute Song in 1946.
