PostNEW Elinor Rowley Photos, Article & Update

Elinor Rowley's modeling career spanned an entire decade from the early 1950s to the early 1960s. To me, she always looked like the very pretty and sweet "girl next door". I've been searching for some new photos to add to her album. I was excited to find a newspaper article about Elinor from 1956:

September 1, 1956
The St. Petersburg (Florida) Times

Here are few new photos:

1950s Schrank Ad

January 1960 Seventeen Magazine

1962 Simplicity Ad

While doing my research, I was saddened to learn that Elinor Rowley Gimbel passed away on April 14, 2007, after a long illness. She was survived by a daughter and a son. All of us at miniMadMOD60s send our condolences to Elinor's family and to all the fashion industry professionals who had the pleasure of working with her.

These photos and the newspaper article can be found in Elinor Rowley's Headsheet Album. I've also added her photo to the In Memoriam Album.
