Photograph Inscribed and Signed: "To Dolores -/With all good wishes -/Bess Myerson". Sepia, 8x10. Bess Myerson (1924-2014), the first Jewish Miss America (1945), appeared on a number of television game shows, including The Big Payoff (1951), I've Got a Secret (1958-1967) and To Tell the Truth (1967), and co-hosted Candid Camera (1966-1967). She later served as New York City's Commissioner of Consumer Affairs (1969-1973) and Commissioner of Cultural Affairs (1983-1987). A close friend of New York Mayor Ed Koch, she ran for the US Senate in 1980, but lost in the primary. Her indictment in a tax fraud and bribery scandal ended her public career, even though she was acquitted. She remained active in civil rights and philanthropic causes. Lightly creased at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
