A stately looking character actress, Margaret Campbell had been the leading lady of the Bramhall Players and appeared on Broadway in revivals of Hamlet (1912) and The Merchant of Venice (1913). She followed her husband, Josef Swickard, into films in the late 1910s and was usually cast as rather grand ladies. Retiring from the screen at the advent of sound, Campbell was brutally murdered by her son on June 27, 1939.
