Marilyn’s LIFE

Standard

I have mentioned before I own an original copy of the June 22, 1962 Life magazine which has the Marilyn “skinny dip.”  On the cover of this magazine another tag line is “Cancer May Be Infectious”.  The magazine goes on to publish a 5 page article on how cancer is or may be infectious.  If any of you would like a copy of these pages, please let me know and I can get them to you.  There are many interesting things in the magazine, but the ads are some of the most interesting.  The cigarette ads and how glamourous smoking seems and the makeup advertisements.

Since the pictures were so controversial they were neatly tucked on page 87 of 92 pages in the June, 1962 Life.  Here are actual shots of the 4 page article.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the original article from the 1962 Life magazine.  If something isn’t clear, let me know, and I will clarify it.  Happy reading.

About lucygracesmom

I am a mom of one 10 year old and stepmother to three wonderful adults; ages 20, 23 and 25. The youngest child is just beginning Fifth grade at Ashland Elementary in the Gifted/Quest program. She enjoys playing violin, archery and everything scientific. Mary Stewart is beginning her last year of medical school at Case Western in Cleveland. She and her fiancé, Franklin, plan to marry next June! Charles Morgan just graduated from the College of Charleston and will be beginning Post-Baccalaureate work next month. Betsy is living the college dream at Ole Miss in Oxford studying Business and the most fun ways to party. She plans to take the LSAT next summer! We are very blessed in the family department. My husband is a lawyer specializing in Intellectual Property, computer and entertainment law. We are in the eighth year since starting our own business, Montague Law PLLC. I have the title Operational Manager which means the administrative end of the business (yuk) and now some new and fun work on the firm's website. We live in Lexington, KY or as many know it – horse country. Everything around here is horse-themed and it is a very beautiful area to live in and raise a family. I have many interests that span art, sciences, education, books, computer science and security and one of my greatest passions is design. One of my favorite blogs is Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge. I like living the simple life, spending time with my family and reading and writing about my interests in my blog. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to share with you the many things I enjoy so that you may enjoy them too. I love sharing cool information with people who appreciate it. I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
