The Beverly Hillbillies

Nancy Kulp

Jane Hathaway

A native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Nancy Kulp majored in journalism at Florida State University and made her way to Hollywood in 1951. Although she had hopes of a career in television journalism, Kulp quickly began taking acting roles, which led to guest roles on Perry Mason, I Love Lucy and The Red Skelton Show, among others. Though she appeared in a number of feature films, including The Three Faces of Eve, The Parent Trap and Who's Minding The Store? before becoming Jane Hathaway on The Beverly Hillbillies, Kulp's most prominent role was bird-watcher Pamela Livingstone on Love That Bob.

Following her Emmy-nominated role on The Beverly Hillbillies, Kulp appeared on CHiPs and Sanford and Son as well as in the Broadway production of Morning's at Seven. Kulp revisted the hills of Beverly in the 1981 made-for-TV movie The Return of the Beverly Hillbillies along with Buddy Ebsen and Donna Douglas. Her final role as an actress was in the form of a voice-over in the 1982 film Computers are People Too. In 1984, Kulp unsuccessfully ran for the Ninth Congressional District's seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, blaming her defeat on a commercial for her opponent, which starred Buddy Ebsen. After her failed foray into politics, she served as an Artist in Residence at Juniata College in Pennsylvania. Nancy Kulp died of cancer in 1991.

Character Bio

The ever-efficient secretary to Mr. Drysdale, Jane Hathaway takes great pleasure in teaching the Clampetts the ways of big city life. More intelligent than her money-hungry boss, Miss Jane appreciates Jed's simple wisdom. But the prim and proper spinster is smitten with Jed's nephew, the rugged, but simple, Jethro Bodine. At times she can be so blinded by his brawn that she comes frightfully close to making a fool of herself. In the end, Miss Hathaway always manages to maintain her composure with the Clampetts while carrying out Drysdale's outrageous demands.
