Ruth White Facts
Ruth White spent the final decade of her life as one of New York's most highly praised character actresses. White had sacrificed her career to care for an ailing parent, and when she returned to acting, she was in her mid-thirties, overweight, and hardly exhibiting much promise. However, she soon scored great successes in the off-Broadway plays of Samuel Beckett (most notably "Happy Days"), appeared in Edward Albee's "Malcolm" (1966) and "Box" (1968), and earned a Tony nomination for her role in Harold Pinter's "The Birthday Party" (1968). White earned an Emmy for her sole nomination, in the Hallmark Hall of Fame production of "Little Moon of Alban". She was unforgettable in the films "Up the Down Staircase", "No Way To Treat A Lady" and "Midnight Cowboy."

She taught acting and drama at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey.

She was a teacher in New Jersey while she was pursuing an acting career in New York City.
