Al Jolson Home Page|The IAJS|Dolores Kontowicz

We were all deeply saddened at the passing of Dolores Kontowicz, the founder of the International Al Jolson Society, on June 11, 2010. We were thrilled that she could be with us at the 2010 Milwaukee Jolson Festival, and her memory will stay with us always. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her wonderful family, that they may be comforted in their time of grief.

Her funeral was on June 17, 2010. Click here for a link to details and a guestbook that you can sign for the family.

At the 40th Anniversary of the International Al Jolson Society, Dolores recorded an interview with John Wehrman. Click here or on the photo above to listen to some of that interview. This is part of the a CD avaiable from the IAJS Audio Department, "1950 ... The End and the Beginning." Contact the Audio Director for ordering information.
