Ziegfeld Club Photos, News Clippings_jane
by jane for group historicalziegfeld Nov 21, 2008

The Ziegfeld Club 1948 Anniversary Ball Photos by Cornell Capa are from strether, thanks!

The Ziegfeld Club was organized in 1936, under the aegis of Billie Burke (Mrs. Florenz Ziegfeld) and Bernard Sobel, one of Mr. Ziegfeld’s chief publicists. The Ziegfeld Club, Inc., is the only such organization officially sanctioned by the late Mrs. Florenz Ziegfeld. As the years have passed, so have most of the original Ziegfeld Follies girls. Today there is only one known survivor, Doris Eaton Travis, born in 1904.

The Ziegfeld Club holds an Anniversary Ball every year to raise money for former Ziegfeld Girls and Broadway stars who are destitute and other charities. The 100th Anniversary Ball last year was a sell out and such a hit that people had to be turned away!

The Club is a fantastic source of reference materials and can be visited by calling in advance. My dream!!!!

Thanks so much, strether! They may be gone but certainly not forgotten here :)

And they still knew how to party!!!
