Canada's most popular classical actor, William Ian DeWitt Hutt,
thrilled audiences with superb performances in Hamlet, Macbeth,
Richard II, King Lear and numerous other Shakespearean plays.
In his early teens, Hutt proclaimed himself an 'Oscar Wilde.'
At the outbreak of World War II, he enlisted and served 4 1/2 years
as a medical corpsman with the 5th Canadian Armored Division.
After the war he continued his education, entering the field of acting.
Hutt acquired a loyal following, and his fellow comrades, the men
of the 5th Canadian Armored Division were his greatest fans.
