Dorothy Maynor
In recognition of Black History Month, here is a page from Images of America: Marlborough book on opera singer, Dorothy Maynor.

Page transcript: “Opera singer and Milton resident Dorothy Maynor (1910-1996), the daughter of Rev. John J. Maynor and Alice Jeffries Maynor, was born on September 3, 1910, in Norfolk, Virginia. She began singing as a young girl in her father’s church. She was educated at the Hampton Institute in Virginia and at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey. In 1952, she was the first African American artist to perform at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC.” (Image from the Southern Ulster Times).
