9th Annual Platter Queen Contest


Box 5 Folder 27: "Folder 27, the 9th annual platter queen contest of Johnny Jive, Ed McClure, which contains two shots of the contestants. We've identified Loretta Scott who is on the far right as you look at the women. We know her and we know that the winner of the December 1967 contest was Brenda Duff, she’s wearing the crown. We know that two people to the left of Johnny Jive in the winners' photo is Linda Coleman, who’s now a state senator and was a city counsilor in Birmingham for a long time. In the larger picture she is depicted four women to the left, to Johnny Jive’s left, as well. And there you have it. Donated for copying by Ed McClure."
