Primping for the Prom...

From the on-line auction house...

Duke Ellington & His Orchestra
We are offering an 8.5 x 14 green folded sheet that has been signed on the verso by Duke Ellington & four members of his orchestra. The sheet is a program for the 1960 – 1961 Homecoming Queen Candidates in which Duke and his orchestra played, as noted on the program. The program refers to KSC, I believe this to be Kentucky State College.  
The sheet has been folded into squares, probably in 1960, which is why it has been signed as it is.
This item comes with the vintage Duke Ellington publicity photo that is shown. This photo is date stamped on the back Jun 22 1969.
