9. Dorothy Dix at her desk. “Mrs. Elizabeth Meriwether Gilmer, known to
millions as Dorothy Dix. Her byline is still causing confusion.
Americans haven’t forgotten Dorothy Dix, their compassionate advisor and
friend, who died in New Orleans 22 years ago today. How do I know?
Because for years nostalgic readers have confused my byline with that of
the Southern gentlewoman whose counsel saw them through the woes of the
Great depression and two World Wars? They don’t seem to realize that
Miss Dix-who covered Queen Victoria’s Jubilee in 1897-couldn’t be
writing today. But Atlanta, where my newspaper byline appears, has had a
long love affair with Dorothy Dix. Like many other cities, Atlanta
claimed her for its own because her syndicated columns, with their warm,
down-to-earth quality, made readers feel she was writing from a desk
downtown,” ns., December 17, 1973.
