"No one can exceed him in solid, impenetrable asininity. But no one can, at the same time, be more amiable, well-meaning and attractive. Nature gave him a large and solemn face which seemed to promise an unending series of well-intentioned blunders, and his art, succeeds, somehow, in giving the impression that his career has been more the result of the following with an admirable consistency Polonius's advise--"To thine own self be true.'"--Joseph Wood Krutch wrote in "The Nation" (quoted in "New York Times" obituary, June 20, 1966)

Wynn's name is honored in the last two call letters of radio station WNEW, the only vestige of the proposed Amalgamated Broadcasting System in which he played a prominent role.
