Index ZW Photographed by the Athletic Model Guild


I must thank a generous fan of this blog for this index of models, whose catalog name begins with ZW.

Here–from top to bottom and left to right–appear Larry Hale, Ivan Marsevsky, David Day, Danny Wells, John Glynn, Nolan ONeill Joe Gies, Armand Poe, Dexter Ladd, Bob Mann, Gordy Morris, Jim Morgan, Bob White, Tom Kingman, Ding Baker, Bob Tuttleton, Bill Matterseig, Al Eisenberg, Dalton WIllis, Rusty Crawford, Cliff Henderson, Buz Sawyer, Bob Cummings, Bob Cross, Ray Baker, Swede Olsen and Van Jackson.

Bob Mizer's note on another index such as this one helpfully explains his numbering system: "First number under picture identifies photo. The last number is that of the catalog page (or pages) which illustrate more photos of the model. Each catalog page: 10 cents."

This catalog shows you the thirteenth photograph of models whose catalog name begins with ZW.
