Peggy Cartwright
Birth: Nov. 14, 1912
Death: Jun. 13, 2001

Actress. Original member of the Our Gang series. She appeared in the first six shorts including "Our Gang" (1922). She was the last surviving member of the original "Our Gang" group of children. Canadian-born Cartwright was one of Hollywood's earliest child actors (1915's "Birth of a Nation"). At 50, she married African-American actor/activist Bill Walker (best remembered as 'Rev. Sykes' in the 1962 film classic "To Kill a Mockingbird"), making them one of the few interracial couples in Hollywood at the time. They were married 30 years, until Walker's death in 1992.
