American actor.  His Dad was a successful lawyer and THURLOW studied law in DC for several years but quit to become a successful, well-reviewed leading-man stage actor with his own touring company.  In 1899, he married BEATRICE, the daughter of a socially prominent and wealthy Boston financier (SAMUEL FARQUHAR).  By 1914 he was a star of both stage and films and married one of his co-stars (ELSIE ESMOND,born STURKOW).  His studio bio says that he is also an author (many children's stories), playwright, composer, singer, and athlete.
He composed the lyrics and music for "Esther's Lullaby" which he played and sang at the White House for President Cleveland's first daughter, ESTHER.
His 1917 WWI Draft Card  (age 42) says he was "tall with a medium build, blue eyes and brown hair".  He continued acting, mainly in New York stage plays (to good reviews) until the 8 Oct 1940 New York Times mention of his having a part in the play "Color-Blind".
