  Dead Famous

Carol Ann Doda was born on August 29, 1937, and died on November 9, 2015.

She was a topless stripper in San Francisco, California who was active from the 1960s through the 1980s.

Carol was one of the first of the era.

In 1964 Carol made international news, first by dancing topless at the city’s Condor Club, then by enhancing her bust from size 34 to 44 through silicone injections.

Her breasts became known as Doda’s “twin 44s” and “the new Twin Peaks of San Francisco.”

Carol was born August 29, 1937, in Solano County, California, and grew up in San Francisco.

Her parents divorced when she was 3. Although private about her personal life, Carol claimed to have dropped out of school and became a cocktail waitress at age 14.

Carol said she was never married. While very young, she gave birth to two children with whom she had little contact: daughter, Donna Smith Terzian, who predeceased her, and son Tom Smith.

On November 9, 2015, Doda passed away, due to kidney failure at St. Luke’s Hospital in San Francisco after a long stay.
