: Does anyone know what the phrase "Dutch Doll" means? According to my father he heard it when he was a teen (seventies) and understood it to mean a "mixture of many races", but I have not been able to find this phrase anyhwere in the present day. Finding if the meaning is true is key to research my father is doing at the moment. Thanks for any insight at all.

The only definition for it in the Oxford English Dictionary is "a jointed wooden doll." Not in my other references at all.
