L-R: Diana Ross dolls by Mego (1977), Ideal (1969), and Mattel (2003) -- the Mattel doll captures her likeness the best. I have this trio, but could only locate two. I looked high and low for my Mego Diana Ross; my doll room is in a shambles as a result, and I still have not located my doll. The image is courtesy of Flickr's share feature.
No, this post is not about Diana Ross. It's about her sister, Dr. Barbara Ross-Lee, the first African American woman to be appointed dean of an American medical school. Read more about Dr. Ross-Lee at the following link that was shared on my WLBDSister list on October 20, 2011, by Ruth Manning. It was her final post on the sister list. She was still using the signature, "Healed by His Stripes." (I am confident and comforted in knowing she is now healed, just no longer with us.)
Below is a link to more information with an updated image of this Dr. Ross-Lee, a history maker:
In the next few days or until the end of the month, whichever comes first, I'll be sharing images of dolls rediscovered during my search for my Mego Ross. Where is that darn doll????
