Keep Cool, Kathleen is a great pictorial from All Man July 1968. Kathleen’s pictorial was a submission by her boyfriend. The article says she is a 21 year old coed from LA who’s boyfriend thinks she’s really pretty, which is apparently pretty much the only requirement for submissions to All Man magazine. I like the story they present, that they feature ladies from all over America, and like to cover a variety of cities, small and large. I bet they received a lot of submissions from people in LA and I think it’s great that amateur photographers were able to get into a nationwide publication, something that was harder in those days. The access of information that we have today provides people a way to contact and get involved with creative professionals, it had to be a pretty big deal to get into any magazine back then. My other fave thing about this pictorial is how grumpy she looks, not that anyone needs to smile to be beautiful, but she just looks upset. ‘Fine, whatever, take my picture’ Enjoy!

It’s a good pictorial. Looks like he was a decent enough photographer.
