English bartender Harry Craddock (1875/76-1963) trained in the United States at Cleveland's grandest luxury hotel, the Hollenden, rising to prominence as one of the top mixologists of the twenties and thirties. During Prohibition, Craddock returned to England, where he worked at the American Bar of London's Savoy Hotel and cofounded the United Kingdom Bartenders Guild. "The Dean of Shakers," he is credited with inventing the dry martini as well as several classic cocktails, including Corpse Reviver No. 2 and the White Lady.
