Friday's Fabulous Woman: Doris Eaton Travis

At the age of 105, Doris Eaton Travis is the last surviving Ziegfeld girl and reportedly still dances three times a week.   Per Uppercase Gallery: "By the time she received her honorary doctorate at age 101, Doris had starred in silent and talking pictures, performed for presidents and princesses, bantered with Babe Ruth, offended Henry Ford, outlived six siblings, wrote a newspaper column, hosted a television show, earned a phi beta kappa degree in history (at 88), raised turkeys, and raced horses." What an inspiration!
