There is some small facts about Beulah Quo:
  • Married name was originally 'Kwoh'. Changed spelling to 'Quo' because people kept asking if the name was a radio station.
  • Children: son Stewart, daughter Mary Ellen.
  • Was teaching sociology at a community college when she heard that director 'Henry King (I)' was looking for a dialect coach for 'Jennifer Jones (I)' , who played a Eurasian in the 1955 film Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing (1955) . The director instead hired Quo to play a small role in the film as Jones' aunt.
  • She earned a bachelor's degree in social welfare from the University of California at Berkeley, and earned a master's degree in sociology at the University of Chicago.
