Scope and content

Half-length portrait of Shirley Fowler, the 1942 Portland Rose Festival princess from Franklin High School. Fowler was later selected as the Rose Festival queen. She is standing at a table, facing slightly left, and smiling. On the table in front of her are a mixing bowl, a plate of eggs, a canister of baking powder, a bottle of liquid, and a canister of Hershey’s cocoa. She is holding a sifter in one hand. A cropped version of this photograph was published on the front page of the Oregon Journal “News & Views” section on Sunday, May 24, 1942. The page featured photographs of each Rose Festival princess and a brief story headlined “Princesses Off Duty.” This photograph had the following caption: “INVADER—Shirley Louise Fowler, Franklin high school princess, takes over the home economics laboratory to indulge her favorite pastime, baking a chocolate cake. (Good, too!).” See related image Nos. 375A0281, 375A0282, 375A0283, 375A0284, 375A0285, 375A0287, 375A0288, and 375A0292, which were published on the same page.
