Long, John Luther

Long, John Luther
   Pennsylvania-born John Luther Long gave up a thriving law career to write short stories before collaborating with David Belasco on three plays, Madame Butterfly (1900), The Darling ofthe Gods (1902), and Adrea (1904). With Edward Childs Carpenter he wrote The Dragon Fly (1905), but he also penned several plays on his own, including Dolce (1906), which starred Minnie Maddern Fiske, and Kassa (1909), a vehicle for Mrs. Leslie Carter. Long's final play, Crowns (1922), found scant favor.
