In the late 1970s, Betsy added a second career as a professional photographer. In her book, Lisanne: A Young Model (Clarkson N. Potter, 1979), the model-turned-photographer recorded the day-to-day life of 14-year-old Lisanne Falk after she signed with Ford Models:

Lisanne commented:
Ford is the largest modeling agency in the world. But it's not impersonal, or snobbish, or anything. Eileen and Jerry Ford, the owners, are like the super-parents of one gigantic family. They even throw Christmas parties for all the kids in the Children's Division.

When the Supermodels Hall of Fame launches, we will put out the word far and wide for the former models of all eras. Since we will be in major search engines, and not an underground niche website like this, we will get a great response.
We will add those three names to the list.
