Kitty Clarke, no kin to Ernestine. She was strongly featured in RBB photos.

Roger I could swear that is Joyce Kuhn. She was a very beautiful show girl, and they used her for a lot of publicity. When Ben was 4 years old Rex Williams and I were on the Cristiani Bros. Circus. And Joyce and I modeled at Ringling School of Art. And I worked at all of the other Art Studios. Mine was not due to beauty, they told me that they liked the fact that I had different colorations on my legs & arms, due to calluses & bruises. I did portrait, and figure modeling with costumes on. Man that was hard work. Their instructor was also an artist that would paint too. Sometimes he would forget to call break. Staying in that one position for hours was tough. They paid fifty cents an hour, and if you would model NUDE you got fifty cents more. I got fifty cents period. I really have respect for people that make their living that way. Of course they pay better now, more than fifty years later. LOL....Barbara....

BARBARA: I had not known of Ms. Kuhn, and indeed, she is beautiful. Is she any kin to Eddie Kuhn?
