Baku, January 26, AZERTAC
Gloria McMillan, who played the sweet schoolgirl and principal’s daughter Harriet Conklin opposite Eve Arden in the comedy Our Miss Brooks on the radio, television and big screen, has died, according to Hollywood Reporter. She was 88.
McMillan died peacefully Wednesday at her home in Huntington Beach, California, after being diagnosed in November with a cancerous tumor in her bile duct, her husband of 35 years, Ron Cocking, told The Hollywood Reporter. “She was, indeed, a beautiful, talented and loving person,” he said.
McMillan had acted on the radio in live dramas for The Lux Radio Theatre and on Mayor of the Town with Agnes Moorehead, Lionel Barrymore and Conrad Bain before she was hired at age 13 for CBS Radio’s Our Miss Brooks, a big hit right out of the gate.
