Gwendolyn Monroe Mourns Death Of Ex-Husband Dom DiMaggio

LOS ANGELES—As news of Dom DiMaggio's death spread throughout the baseball world, few took the news as hard as the former Red Sox's one-time wife, 84-year-old librarian Gwendolyn Monroe.

Monroe refused to comment on her alleged affair with then–vice president Lyndon Johnson.
