Mary Jackson

Mary Jackson grew up in Michigan during the early Depression years. She attended the county Normal School which was a training school for prospective teachers in rural communities. She graduated at age 17. During her first year in the classroom, she recalled, she had three students older than she was. Her teaching career lasted but one year, when she decided to attend Michigan State University to study acting. She graduated in 1933 and went to Chicago to begin her acting career.

Almost 40 years later she would capture the hearts of America by her portrayal of Emily Baldwin. “‘The Waltons’ was a real joy and a magnificent tribute to Earl Hamner. Earl gave me two things, don’t you know, that I will always cherish and be thankful for: Helen Kleeb (Miss Mamie) as my older sister and the TV series ‘The Waltons’......and he gave me Ashley Longworth. I think you ought to know that Ashley has never come back. In case you see him out there, please tell him to return. I have some of the Recipe waiting”, she said with a smile and a wink.
