Shirrell helped found the Triangle Club at Princeton University with the writer Booth Tarkington. He wanted to become a professional actor but his parents had such a hissy that he stayed in Buffalo where they set him up in a series of businesses which he managed to run into the ground. He ended up as Commissioner of Jurors for Erie county and acted in amateur theatricals. By the time he died the family fortunes were pretty well exhausted. (this info via his grandaughter Shirrell)

"as the commissioner of Jurors for the last 15 years he had come in contact with every class of citiznes and few men had become better know. His social activities als mad ehim popular- particularly his enthusiastic interest in the Buffalo players and Triangle Club (obituary piece)
