Description

Doris "Dot" Marie Long

born 1905.
The Long family grew up in Lowell, MA. Dennis Long owned a newspaper there.
Dot graduated from Simmons College in Boston in 1926. It was while at Simmons her father, Denny A. Long purchased the banjo for her. She always told me stories about college parties and speakeasy's and how exciting it was to “almost get caught”
