Mystery Solved, Birthday Greeting Sent!

We want to thank everyone brave enough to have ventured a guess in our Mystery Girl Photo Contest, and we congratulate Marilyn O’Leary-Baker of the 1970-71 Golddiggers, who was first to submit the correct answer, with DGD regular Barry Deslauriers following suit…One of the clues we gave was that if you could see that black-and-white picture of our mystery gal in color, you could quickly narrow down the possibilities. Well, now, with our just-posted photo of the lady in question all grown up and posing for a Golddiggers hat fashion spread in TV Guide, we think you can see why.
To followers of the Golddiggers, she’s the beautiful redhead who could kick up a storm or perform a delicate ballet on The Dean Martin Show and Golddiggers’ syndicated series. To sci-fi fans, she will forever be Katy, the cybernetic fembot from The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. To those familiar with her current line of clever and creative work, she is a first-rate graphic artist. But to all of her friends and family, she is the sweet and lovely JANICE WHITBY.
And since today is her birthday (what a coincidence, huh?!), we want to wish you, Jan, a very Happy, Healthy Birthday, and Many, Many More.
