    Dorothy Stickney, an accomplished actress and Dickinson native, flourished on Broadway from the early thirties until the mid seventies. She originated roles in such plays as "The Front Page" and "On Borrowed Time." And, of course, Dorothy was the first to play Vinnie Day in "Life with Father," the longest running straight play in Broadway history. Written by her husband , Howard Lindsay, and his collaborator, Russel Crouse, the role won Dorothy the N.Y. Drama League award. Later, Dorothy appeared in "Life with Mother," a well received sequel to the earlier play. She also enjoyed successes on stage with Mary Martin and Charles Boyer in "Kind Sir" and opposite Marlon Brando in "A Sreetcar Named Desire." In 1963, Miss Stickney received North Dakota's Theodore Roosevelt Rough Rider Award for Outstanding Achievement by a North Dakota native. Her last Broadway performance was as Berthe in "Pippin." She contributed significantly to the initial remodeling of the gymansium space that became the auditorium. She also left a sizable scholarship endowment to DSU Theatre.
