James Harvey Dodd – a movie star?

Check this out, while searching Mary Washington on the internet archives I came up with a couple of gems, one from the 1940s and one from the 21st century:

    Actually, James Harvey Dood was the husband of Eileen Kramer Dodd (of Dodd Auditorium Fame) who was also a professor at the then MWC, below is her bio …

    Native of Coplay, PA, she was a psychology professor at the college for 44 years. For 18 of those years, she was the chair of the Psychology Department, advised many student organizations, and led various faculty committees and activities. She was married to the late James H. Dodd, also a professor at Mary Washington, who taught economics. When she started at the college in 1926, she became the first woman on the faculty in the history of the institution to hold a Ph. D. She died November 28, 1998.

    The auditorium of George Washington Hall was renamed Eileen Kramer Dodd Auditorium in 1980, in memory of this outstanding member of the college’s history.
