Publicity Shot of Beatrice Alexander for the Alexander Doll Company, circa 1920s

This early publicity shot (circa 1920s) is one of the first to identify Beatrice Alexander as "Madame Alexander." The first recorded mention of her as Madame Alexander occurred in the 1928 edition of Playthings magazine, but some people remember her taking on the title as early as 1925, at the suggestion of an advertising executive who thought she looked French.
Institution: William Alexander Birnbaum
