Spring Byington (1886-1971) was an American actress of radio, stage, and screen, most famously lending her talent to the CBS sitcom December Bride. Byington began acting in school, participating in amateur productions, eventually joining the Elitch Garden Stock Company at the age of 14. After her mother passed in 1907, she took her inheritance and moved to New York to pursue acting professionally, joining a theatre company that toured Buenos Aires, Argentina just a year later. She would continue to do theatre work for a long period of time afterwards, appearing in 21 Broadway plays between 1924 and 1934. Although she did film work for a number of years, including an Academy Award nominated role in the film You Can't Take It With You (1938), it was her work on the sitcom December Bride that would forever cement her name in television history. Today, she is highly regarded as one of the founding women of television comedy, often compared to Lucille Ball, whose company Desilu produced the sitcom.
