Wife of Jimmie. W. Dodd. Ruth performed under the name Ruth Carrell. She is best known for performing in overseas USO tours. She toured as part of a 6-member USO group (along with husband Jimmie Dodd, Pat O'Brien, Jinx Falkenburg, Harry Brown and Betty Yeaton). The group spent fifty days touring the China-Burma-India theater of war from late October 1943 to December 1944. Ruth was also a songwriter with many song credits to her name.
