Bing Crosby wrote to her begging her to go out with him.

Connie her daughter writes us:
    I haven't put up Dollie's biography on my site yet but I should have it done by this weekend if you'd like to have a look. You know more about all of this stuff than I do, so maybe you'll pick up on something that I am missing. Anyway, thanks for putting up a page for her and I will cross my fingers that someone will be able to tell me more about her. ( See link below If You can help her.)
