(Wikipedia) - Doris Eaton Travis (also Doris Eaton) (born March 14, 1904) is a retired Broadway and film performer, dance instructor and author. She is also the last surviving Ziegfeld girl.
Eaton began attending dance lessons in Washington D.C., along with her sisters Mary and Pearl, at the age of four.
