Motion Picture Screenwriter. The second wife of General of the Army Omar N. Bradley, she was a playwright for television and movies. Educated at Kansas Wesleyan University and at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), (later receiving an honorary doctorate's degree from Park College), she was a freelance writer for UPI in Okinawa when she met General Bradley in 1950 for an interview. She returned to Southern California, where she worked as a screenwriter for the television series "My Three Sons" and "The Untouchables." She also wrote the feature film "China Doll" which starred Victor Mature, and assisted General Bradley when he was the technical advisor on the Oscar-winning film "Patton." She married General Bradley in 1966, just nine months after the death of his first wife; it was her third marriage, the first two ending in divorce. She initially lived in Century City, California, before moving to Rancho Mirage in the late 1980s. She had no children. During her marriage to General Bradley, she was active in the National League of American Pen Women, the Omar Bradley Foundation, and the American Battle Monuments Commission, to which in 1981 President Reagan appointed her to the 11-member commission.
