BORIS KARLOFF

(23 November 1887 – 2 February 1969)

Was born William Henry Pratt, the youngest of nine children, in 1887. He was raised mostly by his older siblings after the death of his mother. His family had Anglo-English heritage, and became important in the Diplomatic Corp. Young William suffered was bow legged and suffered from stuttering and a lisp. He would conquer his stuttering, but traces of his lisp remained throughout his career. He dropped out of school in 1909 and began work as a laborer. He travelled to Canada and began appearing on the stage. It
was during this period he adopted the name Boris Karloff, in part to prevent embarrassment to his brothers in the Foreign Service (years later, after the success of Frankenstein, Karloff returned to England for a film, and the brothers jostled for the chance to be photographed with their "baby brother").  Eventually he made his way to Hollywood and appeared in a number of silent films. Work remained sporadic, and he was forced to continue his laborers jobs. The strain of manual labor led to back problems that would
plague him for the rest of his life.
