Best known as a generous patron of the arts in South Florida, Dolores Barwell Ziff played many other roles in life -- farmer, benefactor to numerous charities, U.S. Navy servicewoman, accomplished cook, horse-breeder, actress, gunnery instructor, art teacher, skin diver, author, antiques dealer and rally-car racer.

Her name, with her husband's, adorns the ballet-opera house of Miami's performing arts center. [Source]
