In the first several historic portrayals this summer, actress Anne McEvoy will portray the remarkable life and career of Dorothy Fuldheim, a pioneer broadcast journalist, commentator and author at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 7 in Hoover Auditorium.

Fuldheim was a nightly presence on television in Northeast Ohio for an unbroken span of 47 years. As WEWS Channel 5’s resident news analyst, she offered a thoughtful nightly commentary on life, death and every aspect of human endeavor in between.

She interviewed presidential candidates, Hollywood stars and is known as the only American journalist to have interviewed Adolf Hitler. She traveled the world, authored four books, married twice and raised one daughter and granddaughter.

McEvoy joined Women In History in 1998. She is a full-time writer/editor for the Creative Division of American Greetings, Inc. Her background is in theater, receiving a bachelor’s in speech and drama from Ursuline College and working for over 40 years in the varying capacities of director, playwright, composer, lyricist, choreographer and actor in professional and community theater in the greater Cleveland area.

In 1975, she co-founded Cornucopia, Inc, a non-profit organization that offers vocational opportunities, job training and placement to mentally and physically challenged adults.

The event is finished.
