Biography

Dorothy Locke started fencing in 1928 and competed for Salle d’Armes Vince in Manhattan. She was AFLA (Amateur Fencers League of America) Champion in 1932-33. Locke also finished second in the national championship four times, the first in 1931 to Marion Lloyd, and the last in 1938 to Helene Mayer. Frustrated by her many second-place finishes, Locke retired after the 1938 competition. She was later named to the US Fencing Hall of Fame.
