Harry Eversfield was born in England around 1866. Although he was a noted stage star even as a child not a lot of information
concerning his life has come to light. Apparently well regarded his career was cut short when he died of a morphine overdose
at the age of 30 in his New York City hotel room in early 1896. At the time he was portraying the role of Algeron in the stage
production of
The Artist's Model. Most news paper reports state that the morphine had been prescribed by his physician to
help him cope with bought of severe insomnia and that his death was accidental though several reports list his death as a
suicide. At the time of his death he was married to the former Miss Amy Boucicault and had two children. His family was
residing in England at the time of his death.
