Scope and content

Portrait of the 1932 Rose Festival queen and princesses, all wearing matching dresses. The queen, Frances Kanzler, is sitting on a throne and is holding a bouquet of roses. The princesses are sitting on the dais around and below her. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 2 of the Oregon Journal on June 5, 1932, under the headline “New Festival Queen and Her Royal Princesses.” The photograph had the following caption: “Queen Frances Kanzler, Washington high school senior, and her seven high school princes [sic] who will rule over Portland’s annual fiesta of the rose, June 16-17-18, in their royal robes. Front row, from left: Hazel May Bennett, Lincoln; Leone Hale Baker, Franklin; Florence Marie Kelly, Grant. Back row, from left: Miriam Alice Parsons, Roosevelt; Jeanne Van Dersal, High School of Commerce; Queen Frances; Garlyn Genevieve Morgan, Girls’ Polytechnic, and Ferol Helen Richardson, Jefferson.” A story about Frances Kanzler's selection as queen was published on the front page, and this photograph of the court accompanied the continuation of the story on Page 2.
