Olive Frances Wyndham Meysenberg (June 16, 1886 – November 24, 1971) was an American actress on stage and in silent films.

Early life

Olive Frances Wyndham Meysenburg was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,[1] the daughter of E. A. von Meysenburg, a German diplomat, and Oral Josephine Wyndham. Her older sister Janet Beecher was also an actress.[2] The sisters were related to Harriet Beecher Stowe on their mother's side.[3]

Her father's work as a vice-consul for Germany led to her growing up in Chicago.[4]
