[fey]
Fay, Frank, 1870-1931, and W. G. Fay, 1872-1947, brothers, both Irish actors. The Fay brothers formed the Irish National Theatre, an amateur group founded on the conviction that only Irish actors could perform in Irish plays. Around the nucleus of this company Dublin's Abbey Theatre was formed in 1904 with W. G. Fay as its guiding force. The Fays emigrated to the United States in 1908, where they appeared in a repertory of Irish plays.

See W. G. Fay and C. Carswell, The Fays of the Abbey Theatre (1935, repr. 1971).

Fay, Sidney Bradshaw, 1876-1967, American historian, b. Washington, D.C. Fay, professor of history at Dartmouth College (1902-14), Smith (1914-29), and Harvard (1929-46), earned his name as an authority on European diplomatic history. In The Origins of the World War (1928; 2d ed., rev. 1930; repr. 1967), Fay asserted that the responsibility for World War I was shared by all the powers involved, but that Austria, Serbia, and Russia were primarily to blame. His other works include The Rise of Brandenburg-Prussia to 1786 (1937).
