A Marilyn Monroe inscribed Junior High School class photograph
A panoramic photograph of Ralph Waldo Emerson Junior Hugh School Class of Summer, 1941, with Monroe clearly visible in the crowd. The verso is signed by many class members, with Monroe's inscription reading, "To 'Georgie' / A super, swell fellow / in fact really keen! / (I really mean it Geo.) / Norma Jeane Baker / S '41." At this time, 15 year old Baker was living with Ana Lower in Westwood. The next year, she moved in with Grace and Doc Goddard in Van Nuys, where she would meet first husband, Jim Dougherty.
