Dorothy Kilgallen

Just finished Lee Israel's 1979 biography on Dorothy Kilgallen, the newspaper, "Voice of Broadway" columnist and "What's My Line?" game show panelist. Interesting read. I didn't realize that she had several affairs, as well as a drinking and prescription drug problem. There was speculation that her death wasn't accidental or suicide. She had published parts of the Warren Commission report on Kennedy's assassination months before that was released. She was being tracked by the C.I.A. She had an exclusive interview with Jack Ruby, the man who shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald,the substance which has never been revealed. Prior to her death, she Kilgallen told friends she was about to break the biggest story of her career. Interesting read on a woman that I knew very little about only remember on "What's My Line?" when I was a kid. Who else remembers her?
