Fur Bonnet worn by Phyllis Diller in Field and Stream


This fur bonnet was worn by Phyllis Diller when she posed nude for Field and Stream magazine in 1973. In that same year, Field and Stream magazine awarded Diller “Miss Fun Fishing 1973” “on the occasion of her selection as the first centerfold in the magazine’s 78 year history.” NMAH also has the trophy for this award in its collection (Catalog Number 2003.0289.16).
