Lucy Estelle Doheny was the daughter of Edward "Ned" Doheny, Jr., granddaughter of oil magnate Edward L. Doheny and mother of science fiction writer Larry Niven.
Photograph used for an article dated February 11, 1939; the caption reads "Many people wonder what becomes of Los Angeles society glamor girls. The answer may be found on this page. A few years ago the reigning glamor girl was Dickey Dell Doheny. She is shown when she won the coveted honor of portraying the bride in a Twenty Little Working Girls' style show. Cynthia Smith, her cousin and the previous year's glamor girl, was her maid of honor." Doheny is in a wedding dress standing next to Smith, wearing a long gown. Both women are carrying large floral bouquets.
