High Coo – July 26 – Happy Birthday Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw, age 80

Preferring to be called Bernard Shaw, the celebrated and controversial Irish playwright, social activist and theatre critic lived for 94 years before dying in 1950. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925 and an Academy Award in 1938.

Loved and hated, Shaw has been considered second only to Shakespeare among British dramatists.
