Margarette Shanna, young NBC actress heard over
the networks as Mary Krueger in "Girl Alone" and as
Beulah Sherman in "Dan Harding's Wife", was born in
Council Bluffs, Iowa, twenty-two years ago, the
daughter of a physician. After college work at
Stephens and the University of Iowa she began
acting in stock and in radio. At that time she was
using her own name, Margarette Smith, but decided
she wasn't progressing fast enough so she changed
it to Margarette Shanna and has been busy ever
since. Margarette has reddish-brown hair, weighs 120
and is five feet four.
