Early yearsEdit

Aylesworth was born in Apponaug, Rhode Island, to a military family; his father and his grandfather graduated from the United States Military Academy. Aylesworth himself attended the academy for two years.[2]


Aylesworth's Broadway debut came in Over Night (1911). His other Broadway appearances included the musical Follow Thru (1929), and his last show there was Yankee Point (1942).[1] He was on the stage for over a quarter of a century and acted in many productions. In the 1930s, he became a contract player at Warner Brothers working in character actors, often uncredited. Aylesworth played in over 130 films almost exclusively from the early 1930s onwards. His grave is located at Chapel of the Pines Crematory.
