Belles of the Nineties Barbershop Group


The photograph features, from the left: front row, Marjorie Jackson, Leona Blackmun, Ruth Casteel, Lael Peters; back row, Pat Dozier, Lorraine Mortensen, Nancy Sinclair, and Jane Babcock. These eight girls comprised the Belles of the Nineties - a female song and dance group who, in conjunction with the Folly Dollies and the Golden Gayeties, participated in the All-Northwest Barbershop Ballad Contest. The Belles of the Nineties were not part of the actual competition, their presence being requested for pure entertainment value instead. The contest took place on February 18th and 19th, 1949 in the Forest Grove High School's auditorium.
