In the mid-1890s, Higby was a member of the stock company of the Grand Opera House in Boston, Massachusetts.[1] Later in the 1890s and into the early 1900s, he performed with other stock groups in a variety of locales such as York, Pennsylvania;[2] Rochester, New York;[3] and Brooklyn, New York.[4]

By 1903, Higby had his own troupe, the Wilbur Higby Dramatic Company, which was described in a newspaper article as "one of the highest class repertoire organizations in this country."[5] Within four years, however, the Higby Company had apparently ceased to exist. A 1907 newspaper article described Higby as "leading man with the Morey Stock Co. this season."[6]

Later life

Higby's daughter, Mary Jane Higby, was an actress in television and old-time radio who made one film appearance, as Janet Fay in The Honeymoon Killers. Higby died in Hollywood, California in 1934, aged 67, from pneumonia.
