Pamela Baird (born Pamela Beaird on April 6, 1945) is an American former actress, best known for her role as "Mary Ellen Rogers", the girlfriend of "Wally Cleaver" on the classic sitcom, Leave It to Beaver. She appeared in seven of the show's 235 episodes, but her name was mentioned in many other segments. Mary Ellen and Wally eventually wed, as they were shown as a married couple in the 1983 reunion movie Still the Beaver and the subsequent The New Leave It to Beaver series (in which Janice Kent played Mary Ellen).

Prior to Leave It to Beaver, Baird appeared as Hildy Broeberg in ten episodes of the CBS western series My Friend Flicka (1956–1957), starring Johnny Washbrook, Gene Evans, Anita Louise, and Frank Ferguson. Baird also appeared as one of Kelly's {Noreen Corcoran} friends on the sitcom Bachelor Father.

She is now married, has five children, and is legally named Pamela Beaird Hensley.

She attended Covina High School, and graduated from Westminster Choir College, Princeton, New Jersey in 1968. She graduated in 2005 with a degree in music from Southwestern Assemblies of God University.
