Goldman, Dorothy (1904–96)

Dorothy Goldman, November 1989.
Regina Leader-Post

Born in New York City on July 24, 1904, and educated there, Dorothy Cohen came to Regina when she married Leon Goldman, a businessman, in 1926. A Red Cross volunteer during World War II, she then served on the executive for forty-two years; and for twenty-three years she was area captain for the United Way. Goldman’s work in the Jewish community—locally, regionally, and nationally—was honoured by the Hadassah Organization of Canada. The first woman to receive the Good Servant Award from the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews, she was a president and Life Member of the Women’s Canadian Club of Regina. A patron of the arts, she supported the Norman MacKenzie Art Gallery, Dominion Drama Festival, Regina Little Theatre, Regina Musical Club, Regina Opera Guild, and Regina Symphony Orchestra. She was a patron of the Saskatchewan Music Festivals Association, the Canadian Opera Company, and the Metropolitan Opera seasons in Minneapolis for fifty years. She sponsored various scholarships at the University of Regina for the Conservatory of Music, Journalism Program, and English Department. Her many honours included the Rotary Club’s Heritage Award (1989) and Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Regina (1991). Dorothy Goldman died on February 16, 1996, in Regina, a year after her husband’s death.
