Sorry guys, but no.

Clue: It was said of this man (not by Tarbell), that he identified with Lincoln so strongly throughout his career, that he wouldn't think it a proper ending unless he was assassinated.

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
Correct Steve. It was Raymond Massey. Tarbell made the comment in a letter she wrote to a fellow member of the Pen and Brush Club. Massey had told Tarbell that he would be happy to speak before the club in 1939. Tarbell met Massey during one of his Broadway performances of "Abe Lincoln in Illinois." After watching the film at the White House, with Massey in the audience, FDR praised the movie and added concerning Lincoln "and just think, he wrote his own speeches."
