Neva Gilbert - Playboy USA - July 1954
A popular pin-up and starlet from the mid-Fifties, Neva came to the pages of Playboy via the files of the Baumgarth Calendar Co. "In those days, I was an aspiring actress," she said when she resurfaced in "Playmates Forever!" in 1979. "I'd go on assignments with Marilyn Monroe. We did some calendar shots for a photographer named Tom Kelley. A few months later, I heard the pictures had appeared in a new magazine called Playboy, but I couldn't find a copy. I didn't see my centerfold until this year."
