Inscribed photograph signed: "To Charles/ Devine -/ Anita/ Bryant" in black ink. B/w, 8x10. Anita Bryant (b. 1940), a former Miss Oklahoma and runner-up for Miss America, had some hit pop singles (1959-1960), including "Paper Roses" and "Till There Was You." Thereafter she concentrated on religious music, and moved to Miami to raise a family. She was much in demand as a commercial spokeswoman, especially associated with the Florida Citrus Commission's promotions of orange juice. In 1977, Bryant campaigned against a Miami-Dade County ordnance protecting the rights of homosexuals. Alleging that gays hoped to recruit children to their lifestyle, she founded Save Our Children to oppose gay rights nationally. These efforts provoked a boycott of Florida oranges, and the Citrus Commission and other advertisers dropped her from their campaigns. She tried to establish music theaters in Branson, Missouri and other sites in the Ozarks, but the ventures ended in bankruptcy. Ink notes on verso in unknown hand. Corners slightly rounded. Fine condition.
