Women Who Appeared in Playboy, 1953-1959

A number of people have been after me to do more research on Playboy and get the names of people who have appeared in those wonderful pages. Here is a complete list of the cover models, centerfold and pictorial features from 1953-1959. A few highlights, besides the centerfolds, are Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Bettie Page, Brigitte Bardot and Tina Louise who played Ginger on Gilligan's Island. Ok, someone just said it should be Betty Page. I think they're wrong.
