Dorothy was born in 1893. She passed away in 1967. She was married to Alan Campbell in 1934 and then they divorced in 1947. They remarried each other in Los Angeles in 1950 [1].

Dorothy Parker was a writer, critic, and poet known for her clever wit and sharp quotes. She was an original member of the "Algonquin Round Table" an informal gathering of writers who lunched at the Algonquin Hotel in Manhattan. In 1929 she won the O. Henry Award for her autobiographical short story "Big Blonde". She and Alan Campbell moved to Los Angeles in the mid 1930s and wrote several screenplays including the Academy Award nominated "A Star Is Born" in 1937.

A firm believer in civil rights, Dorothy Parker bequeathed her entire literary estate to Dr. Martin Luther King Junior--although they had never met. After he was assassinated her estate was turned over to the NAACP. Her ashes are located in a memorial in Baltimore, Maryland at the NAACP Headquarters.
