Kathryn McGuire (December 6, 1903 - October 10, 1978) was an American silent-film actress and dancer. Born in Peoria, Illinois, she was said to be recognized by critics and fans alike as one of the rising stars in film. Selected one of the WAMPAS Baby Stars in 1922, she came from a family who had never had a member partake in the acting profession before. At an early age, Kathryn's family moved to Aurora, Illinois and then to Chicago. Kathryn received her education from the Jennings Seminary in Aurora, and remained there even after her parents left that city. By the time she graduated at about the age of fourteen, her parents were ready to move to California. Kathryn was highly interested in dancing, and took classes under the leading ballet masters when she arrived in California.
