1942 Portland Rose Festival Princess Jean Grashorn posing with shoe collectibles

Half-length portrait of Jean Grashorn, the 1942 Portland Rose Festival princess from Roosevelt High School, posing with shoe- and boot-shaped collectibles on a small table. She is facing front, smiling, and holding up one of the collectibles, which appears to be a ceramic or china boot. 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: “BAREFOOT KID? NAY, NAY! Jean Naomi Grashorn, Roosevelt high school’s ideal of Rose Festival royalty, started collecting miniature china and glass shoes about a year ago and the collection just kept on growing. Here’s Jean with a few of her shoes.” See related image Nos. 375A0282, 375A0283, 375A0284, 375A0285, 375A0286, 375A0287, 375A0288, and 375A0292, which were published on the same page.
