It’s nice to see Pamela Green gracing the cover of an American magazine for once. Modern Sunbathing and Hygiene, from what I can tell, ran from the early 1950s to the late 1960s, by which time it had become Modern Sunbathing Quarterly.
It claims to be the American edition of Health & Efficiency, and the first few issues do have an international bent. Pamela Green appeared on the cover in February 1956. It’s an early photo of Pam from when she had short hair. It was taken by George Harrison Marks. Other cover stars included Bettie Page, Diane Webber and Jayne Mansfield.
“A Cultural, Sociological and Scientific Publication” is the rather pompous strapline on the title page. Articles include “A Peek Inside a French Nudist Camp”, “People Are Sure Curious…”, and “The Sun Packs a Wallop”.
It’s Pam birthday today. She would have been 92.
