Miriam Nesbitt (September 14, 1873, Chicago, Illinois - August 11, 1954, Hollywood, California) was a stage and film actress. Born Miriam Schanke or Skanke, she studied at the Stanhope-Wheatcroft Dramatic School, before landing a part in Daniel Frohman's play The Tree of Knowledge under the stage name Miriam Nesbitt. She went on to perform on Broadway a number of times in the first decade of the twentieth century. She also acted in over 120 silent films, beginning in 1908 with Saved by Love.
