Fred Mace

Died 21 February 1917 in New York, New York, USA.

Fred Mace began his adult life as a dentist in Erie, Pennsylvania, before trying film acting in the New York area and becoming one of the early Hollywood acting transplants. He worked for the Biograph Company (1910-1912), New York Motion Picture Company and The Universal Film Manufacturing Company, Incorporated, before becoming a key player in the early Keystone Film Company productions. Best remembered as the Chief of the Keystone Kops, Mace tried a number of production companies featuring himself in the starring roles, including Majestic Motion Picture Company (1913), and his own Fred Mace Feature Film Company. Mace returned briefly to Keystone (1915-1916) before returning to New York.

Fred Mace passed away prematurely at age 38 of what was reported to be a stroke.
