Dorothy Caruso (August 6, 1893 – December 16, 1955)

The daughter of well to do patent lawyer Park Benjaminin of New York, Dorothy was 25 when she married Italian tenor Enrico in 1918. The marriage produced one child, daughter Gloria who was born in 1919. The couple had been married just shy of 3 years when Enrico died at the age of 48. 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 Enrico. 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. By 1942, the relationship of Margaret Anderson with Jane Heap had cooled, and, evacuating from the war in France, Anderson sailed for the United States. During the voyage, Anderson met Dorothy Caruso. The two began a romantic relationship, and lived together until Caruso's death. In 1952, Dorothy wrote her autobiography. She died of cancer in Baltimore, Maryland, just few days before Christmas 1955.
