The first world-known country humorist.
Magazine photograph inscribed and signed: "To David-Howdy!/Minnie/Pearl". Color, 8x10. Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon (1912-1996), known to the country music and comedy world as Minnie Pearl, made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry radio show in 1940 at a time when it was unheard of for a woman to do stand-up comedy. Her boisterous, cheerful "Howdyyyyy!", wide-brimmed straw hat with its dangling $1.98 price tag, toothy grin and calico and gingham dresses were her trademarks for more than a half century on the Grand Ole Opry country music show and 20 years on the syndicated television show Hee Haw. She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1975, the first comedian to be so honored. Fine condition.
