Are there any changes we should make?
Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!Suggest a Change

Date of Birth: 1921
Dorothy Patrick (nee Davis) was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, and graduated from Kelvin High School in 1936. Described as having poise and beauty greater than her years, Dorothy was a professional model for the Hudson's Bay Company, Creed's, and Sears department store catalogues. At age 17, Dorothy moved to New York, where she continued modelling. Dorothy won Samuel Goldwyn's talent search, MGM's "Gateway to Hollywood," and quickly became a Hollywood star, acting in films such as "Till the Clouds Roll By," "New Orleans" (with Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong), "House By The River," and "Belle of Old Mexico." Dorothy was married four times, once to legendary New York Rangers hockey player Lynn Patrick. She died in Los Angeles, California, May 31, 1987, at the age of 65.
