Winnie K. Dodge (1868-1939) was married to Walter L. Dodge, who patented "Tiz", a medicine for tired feet. They had a son, Don, in 1903. The Dodge House, designed by architect Irving Gill, was built for the Dodges in 1916. Winnie and Walter eventually separated and sold the Dodge House in 1924. Winnie moved to 455 North Sycamore Avenue in Los Angeles. She traveled extensively to South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia, often traveling with friend Luna Kies Steiner.
