Dorothy Buffum Chandler (May 19, 1901 – July 6, 1997) was a Los Angeles cultural leader. Her husband, Norman was the publisher of the Los Angeles Times during the mid-20th Century. Their son, Otis, succeed his father in 1960. She herself worked for either the Times or its parent company from 1948 through 1976, but she is perhaps best known for her efforts on behalf of the performing arts, which included saving the Hollywood Bowl in 1950, and the establishment of the Los Angeles Music Center in 1964. Her husband died in 1973, and she never remarried.
