At first you think “1936?” and then you notice that this is a special 1911 number. The entire magazine has a disconnected feel, with some pages straight out of 1911 and others from 1936.
But no matter, as the star of the day is Miss Billie Burke, who in 1911 was a big Broadway star. She married Florenz Ziegfeld three years later. She starred in many movies during the 1920s and the 30s, and was portrayed by Myrna Loy in the 1936 film, The Great Ziegfeld. Today she is remembered almost exclusively for one role – that of Glinda the Good Witch in 1939′s The Wizard of Oz.
Interestingly, she also had her name and likeness on a dress label, Sportswear by Billie Burke, in the 1930s.
