Alumnus of Westtown Boarding School, Chester, Pennsylvania. Westtown has been a coeducational school since its founding in 1799. Over 20% of students are American students of color, and another 20% are Quakers. Students come from more than 25 states and 20 foreign countries. Edward Binns, character actor in the 1950s through the 1980s, appearing in "12 Angry Men," "North by Northwest," "Patton," in television episodes of "Twilight Zone," "The Rockford Files," and "M*A*S*H," among many other film and television credits.

2004 Spring: Columbia County History and Heritage: It would seem that in 1941, Edward Binns and Katherine Dain were members of the Valley Vagabonds, a group of 16 actors and actresses presenting sketches and ballads about historical incidents in the Hudson Valley.

Gravel-voiced, authoritative American character actor, a reliable presence on screen for more than four decades. The son of Pennsylvania Quakers, he was a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and first learned his trade as an apprentice at the Cleveland Playhouse. Binns was among the first to join the newly established Actors Studio in 1947, which effectively paved the way for future opportunities.
Ed Binns was one of six siblings ‏(all boys)‏ and became the father of three children ‏(all girls)‏. I talked by phone with John, the only brother who survived him, who told me much about the kid brother he admittedly idolized. I found it surprising that though Edward was his father’s namesake, he was the youngest of the six Binns brothers.
Their parents, Edward Thomas Binns and Esther Bracken Binns, were Pennsylvania Quakers. Before Eddie’s birth, the family had taken off in a covered wagon for Oklahoma to settle in the “land grab” of the early 20th Century. But after a swindle in which their land was stolen by what John described as “carpetbaggers,” the family gave up the dream and moved back to Philadelphia where Edward was born on September 12, 1916. Binns was married three times. The first two marriages each ended in divorce; the third flourished until his death in 1990 at age 74.
