Elizabeth Ann Roberts

Elizabeth Ann Roberts (born August 4, 1941) is an American model. She was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for the January 1958 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Arthur James and Mike Shea.

Elizabeth's pictorial was a significant one in the history of Playboy because she was only 16 at the time her photos were taken. (Her pictorial was titled "Schoolmate Playmate.") She literally had a note from her mother giving her permission to pose, but both Hugh Hefner and Roberts' mother were arrested and charged by Chicago authorities with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The charges were eventually dropped on the grounds of lack of evidence that Hefner had known her true age.

Roberts eventually became a Bunny at the Chicago Playboy Club.

Her centerfold can be seen in animated form in Ralph Bakshi's film American Pop.

Famous quotes containing the words roberts and/or ann:

    Politics is still the man’s game. The women are allowed to do the chores, the dirty work, and now and then—but only occasionally—one is present at some secret conference or other. But it’s not the rule. They can go out and get the vote, if they can and will; they can collect money, they can be grateful for being permitted to work. But that is all.
    —Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958)

    For women the wage gap sets up an infuriating Catch-22 situation. They do the housework because they earn less, and they earn less because they do the housework.
    —Sylvia Ann Hewitt (20th century)
