Jane Russell at Van Nuys High, 1938

Year of Jane Russell: Day 17

Jane attended Van Nuys High School, graduating in 1939. She was admittedly a terrible student who did not take her studies seriously, but she was very social and some of her fellow student became lifelong friends. She got her feet wet on the stage as a member of the drama club, and photos of her in the 1938 Van Nuys High School yearbook show her onstage and in a group with the rest of the Beginning Drama Club. Naturally athletic, Jane was a member of the volleyball team as the yearbook reveals. Can you pick Jane out?

Personally, I think Jane is pretty easy to spot in a crowd!
