Winifred Bryson (born Winifred Brison; December 20, 1892 – August 20, 1987) was an American actress of the stage and of silent films.


Winifred Bryson was born Winifred Brison on December 20, 1892 in Los Angeles, the daughter of Oliver A. Brison (1871–1922) and Annie Tilley (1870–1964).[citation needed]

Bryson began to perform publicly in 1914, initially in the musical comedy stage, and in the drama Regeneration with Bert Lytell.[1]

Although her first film was Peer Gynt (1915), her real transition to motion pictures was in the film A Heart to Let (1921). In total, Bryson acted in 19 films, her final screen appearance being in Adoration (1928). Her career ended with the advent of talkies.

She was married twice, first to actor Warner Baxter from 1918 until his death in 1951,[2] and then to Ferdinand H. Manger.[3]

Winifred Bryson died on August 20, 1987. She is interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Glendale).[citation needed]
