Last of the Follies girls

By Washington Post editors

Doris Eaton Travis proved that you're never too old to tackle new ventures -- and in her case, too young, either.

Travis, who died May 11 at 106, was the last surviving Ziegfeld Follies girl. She joined the group when she was just 14.

Post Mortem has a look at the story behind the story of the woman who grew up in Washington and kept dancing well into her 100s.
