Georgia Carroll:

Native Texan, Georgia Carroll (1919-2011) was the model for The Spirit of the Centennial statue at the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition. The statue still stands at what is now the Women's Museum in Dallas. Beginning in 1941, she had several small uncredited film roles - the most noted being Betsy Ross in Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942). Multi-talented, she became the featured singer with Kay Kyser's band in 1943 and earned the nickname "Gorgeous Georgia Carroll". Carroll married Kyser in 1944 and retired in 1946.
