The daughter of well to do patent lawyer
Park Benjaminin of New York, Dorothy was 25 when she married Italian tenor Enrico Caruso on August 20, 1918.
The marriage produced one child, daughter Gloria who was born on December 18, 1919. The couple had been married just shy of 3 years when Enrico died at the age of 48 on August 2, 1921.
Dorothy would marry two more times. Her second husband was Captain Ernest Augustus Ingram, and her third was Dr. Charles Adam Holder. Dorothy wrote two biographies about her famous first husband. The first entitled Wings Of Song-The Story Of Caruso was published in 1928. The second and more successful Enrico Caruso-His Life And Death was released 17 years later in 1945 and was the source material for the 1951 film
The Great Caruso starring Mario Lanza as Enrico and Ann Blyth as Dorothy. The following year Dorothy also wrote an autobiography. She died of cancer in Baltimore, Maryland 9 days before Christmas 1955.
