Karen Philipp (born September 7, 1945) is an American singer and actress.


Philipp first came to national prominence in 1968 when she was hired as one of the two female vocalists in the second iteration of Sérgio Mendes & Brasil '66, debuting on their Top Ten best-selling album, "Fool on the Hill." She remained with Brasil '66 (and its successor group, Brasil '77) until 1972, when she left to portray Lt. Dish during the inaugural season of M*A*S*H. Though her role was written out of the series after two episodes, she was featured in the opening credits for several years afterward.

Philipp also had a Playboy pictorial in September 1972,[1] and she had a recurring role on Quincy, M.E. as Robin Rollin.

Personal life[edit]

Philipp married movie producer Pat Proft, and has a son. They reside in Minnesota.
