Biographical Note

Film and stage actress, Lois Wilson began her career in 1916 and was a leading lady of the silent film era. Two of her best known roles were Molly Wingate in "The Covered Wagon" and Daisy Buchanan in the 1926 version of "The Great Gatsby" for which she won the Photoplay magazine best performance award. She later acted in sound movies and also performed on Broadway several times. She also appeared in several soap operas, including "Guiding Light" and "Edge of Night."

Among her other activities, Wilson served as a volunteer for Actor's Equity for 18 years and the Equal Opportunity Committee for AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Actors). She was also a charter member of the Screen Actors Guild.

Wilson was a guest for the Artist-Lecture series at Kent State University in 1973 and was asked at that time to donate her papers to Special Collections and Archives. In 1975, she was awarded KSU's first honorary degree in preforming arts for her performance in "The Women."

Lois Wilson died of pnuemonia on March 3, 1988, at the age of 93.
