About Susan Jacobson (Blanchard)

Susan Blanchard (born Susan Jacobson) is an American socialite and former lyricist and theatrical producer. She was the third wife of actor Henry Fonda, with whom she adopted a daughter, Amy (born 1953), and the second wife of actor Richard Widmark.

The younger child of Dorothy Kiaora Blanchard (born June 7, 1899 — died August 3, 1987), a native of Australia, and Henry Jacobson, a New York businessman, Susan Jacobson took her mother's surname after her parents' divorce and was known as Susan Blanchard thereafter.

In 1929, her mother, a former actress turned interior decorator, married the lyricist and record producer Oscar Hammerstein II. Susan Blanchard had four siblings: a brother, Henry Jacobson, Jr.; a half-brother, James Blanchard Hammerstein (1931-1999); and two step-siblings, William and Alice Hammerstein.

Susan Blanchard studied at The Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Her only sibling was an older brother, né Henry Samuel Jacobson (b. April 27, 1926 — d. January 28, 1997).
