Katherine Mary Dunham married John Thomas Pratt in the summer. There are differing dates on the year, Wiki lists both 1939 or 1941, while their adopted daughter Marie-Christine says it was 1949.
Katherine, who passed in 2006, was an American dancer, choreographer, songwriter, author, educator, and activist. John, who passed in 1986, was a costume and theatrical set designer.
