Born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, actress Alice Drummond was a graduate of Pembroke College, the women's college at Brown University, in the year 1950. In addition to her work in the theater, for which she received a Tony Award, Drummond had a prolific career in television and film. Drummond began her career in 1967 on the cult TV series "Dark Shadows" (ABC, 1966-1971), wherein she played the role of Nurse Jackson.
