Martin Gross, 1321 Crestview Dr., Holly Hill, Fla.


A black and white image of Sheila Flemming, crowned Miss B-CC. Flemming later became the Dean of the School of Social Sciences at Bethune-Cookman University, and has written a book on the history of the college. She is wearing a crown, earrings, a white dress, an embroidered cape, and is holding a large bouquet of flowers in her arms. The flowers have a banner hanging from it reading "Miss Homecoming." She is standing in front of a partially-visible throne. Behind her on the wall hangs a partially-visible portrait of Mary McLeod Bethune. To the left of the portrait also hanging on the wall is a small American flag. On the back of the image is written in pencil "Shelia [sic] Flemming, 1980's; Same size, crop width to 4"; Page 1." The stamp of the photographer's studio is also on the back, which includes the address and phone number.


ca. 1969
