Actress, 'Pam Dawber' grew up in a suburb of Detroit. Her careerbegan to take off when a friend who was going to New York suggestedthat Pam accompany her and bring along her modeling portfolio to showvarious New York modeling agents. A pretty girl, Pam had done somemodeling in Detroit, where she was attending Oakland Community College,and she had also worked as a model and singer in several auto tradeshows. One of the top modeling agencies in New York, Wilhemina, signedPam to an exclusive contract, and she was soon being seen in magazineadvertisements and on TV commercials but Pamela was more interested inacting than in modeling.

She began studying voice and acting. A leadingrole in a stock production of a musical comedy called "Sweet Adeline"at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Connecticut, led to herbeing auditioned for a major role on a new TV series of "Tabitha" (1976) .
