Rayon Yarns - June - 1947
In June 1944, just three years
ago, the first Pin-Up Girl appeared in Yarns. At that time
some 540 of our young men were in the Armed Forces, and the
YARNS Pin-Up Girls drew enthusiastic letters from every corner
of the globe.
Though hesitating to be our
"first", Ann Russell obligingly consented to start us
off right by posing for the first Pin-Up picture. The
Pin-Up Girls proved so popular that they have been continued
over into peacetime.
And now Ann is starting off on
her own big adventure. She was married on April 14 to
William Doyle Tidwell, Jr. Photograph shows Ann in her
wedding dress, which was made by her mother from a length of
pure silk Doyle brought back from Japan.
