In August of 1945 the cover of Coronet magazine was graced
by the smiling face of a lovely blond girl. Inside the magazine,
however, we find no information about her, except for one
brief line that identifies her as Shirley John. That's all. We know
nothing else about the young girl in a polk-a-dot dress with
I bet she's smiling because the price of the magazine was only 25c.
I invite any readers who know more about this cover girl to help
us find out who she was. Was she a model? A movie star?
A contestant in a beauty pageant? We welcome any information.
