About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Betty Gets Ready: 1952

Betty Gets Ready: 1952

1952. "Actress Betty White rehearsing and performing on her Los Angeles daytime television program. Includes White having hair and makeup done prior to show." Photos by Maurice Terrell and Earl Theisen for Look magazine. View full size.

What a first rate actress!

I first saw Betty on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" that all of us in Minneapolis watched religiously and thought she was delightfully funny and pretty as her character Sue Ann Nivens. To this day I think she is outstanding in the roles she has played on TV since and her latest show is a stitch! We're lucky such a talented lady has given us so many decades of entertainment.

I'm going to search out her earlier work because she's so talented and quite frankly, look at this beauty in the makeup chair!
