Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

Miss New Jersey of 1952 and a runner-up in the Miss USA pageant, dark-haired, exotic-looking Ruth Hampton appeared in Abbott and Costello Go to Mars (1953) with Miss USA herself, Jackie Loughery, and a cadre of Miss Universe contestants that included Miss Sweden, Anita Ekberg, and Miss Germany, Renate Hoy. The gig led to a contract with Universal-International and featured roles in such potboilers as Law and Order (1953), with Ronald Reagan, and Ricochet Romance (1954), with the Kettles. She retired in 1954 to marry actor-singer Byron Palmer.
