Cathee Dahmen

Cathee Dahmen (September 16 1945Nov 25 1997) was a popular and successful supermodel in the 1960s and 1970s.

She was half German, half native American Chippewa, and was born and raised in Minnesota.

Dahmen was discovered in her late teens by an illustrator for The New York Times, Antonio Lopez, who introduced her to the fashion world in New York City. Cathee Dahmen worked for Ford Models, in New York during her peak years in the late 1960s, where she was one of Eileen Ford's top earners. After marrying British actor Leonard Whiting, she moved to London where she continued modeling for the Models One agency. In the late 1970s she divorced Whiting, and married again, to singer Alan Merrill, moving to New York. She had four children.

Dahmen retired from modeling in 1980 and died of emphysema in 1997.
