Dorothy Fuldheim shattered more glass ceilings than a cannonball cascade on a neighborhood of greenhouses.

The Cleveland resident was the first female commentator on ABC Radio and the first woman to anchor a television news broadcast, as well as host her own show.

In six decades of journalism, she interviewed Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, Barbara Walters, Helen Kellen, the Duke of Windsor, Benito Mussolini, and more.

You can learn more about this fabulous trailblazer during a special program at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 8, at our Main Branch.

Carol Starre-Kmiecik will appear in character as Fuldheim to discuss her life. (Starr-Kmiecik previously visited the library as Clara Barton, the founder of the American Red Cross.)

Her program is free and open to all. We do ask that you sign up beforehand, and you can RSVP online or by calling the library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 216.
