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.
