Dorothy Young (1908-2011)  of Ocean Grove, NJ, was the daughter of Rev. Robert S. Young, an early alumnus of the Theological School; sister of legendary professor and baseball coach Doc Young; grandmother of McKinley Parker CLA '09; and generous benefactor and namesake of the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts -- not to mention the last surviving stage assistant of Harry Houdini. With her second husband, Gilbert Kiamie, she was a successful stage dancer for a number of years, and went on to take up painting and become, as she said, "one of theFifty American Artists, which was a prestigious group."
