Biography/Timeline

1930

Born and raised in Manhattan, Holm was an only child. Her mother, Jean Parke, was an American portrait Artist and author. Her father, Theodor Holm, was a Norwegian businessman whose company provided marine adjustment services for Lloyd's of London. Because of her parents' occupations, she traveled often during her youth and attended various schools in the Netherlands, France and the United States. She graduated from University School for Girls in Chicago, where she performed in many school stage productions.
