Velma Dawson's Trust

Velma Dawson

One year to the day after her star was added to the Palm Springs Walk of Stars, Velma Dawson's life was celebrated in the Annenberg Theater. Velma was an artist and performer who created Howdy Doody, pictured here with her.

A number of years ago, Velma created a trust to ensure that her legacy will live on here at the art museum she loved.
