Inscription.  
"I am the oldest of the family, [and] have four brothers and a sister. My mother is a widow and so I am the main support. I did clerical work, but at the time hoped that I might better myself....I went to high school and business college in Oakland....I have never thought of marriage particularly....Well I'm young enough now o have a career and then marry."

Dot Kahn, "Miss America Shun Plapperisms, Is Main Support Of The Family," The Atlantic City Sunday Gazette, 9/13/1925, p. 1
 
Erected by Miss America Organization.
