Barbara Dodge was born Barbara Viola Regan in Scituate, Massachusetts, in 1934. At age 16, she married Earl Dodge (q.v.), who would later become the chief spokesman for the Prohibition Party.
She worked for a time at the Denver office of the U.S. Geological Survey. Most of her life, though, was spent helping her husband with his many and varied activities.
Since Earl's death, she has remained at their family home in Lakewood, Colorado and has kept busy winding down Earl's mail-order business in political memorabilia.
