Broadway Buffs

From time-to-time our readers help us with locate cases. Once again, I need your help.

We're looking for a Broadway actress who was quite attractive and renowned about 50 years ago. Her name is Rosemary Williamson. Sometimes she went by Rosemary Williams. She's about 80 now, if still with us.

Williamson, we believe that's her birth name, was from, we also believe, Ohio.

Williamson was the subject of a provocative TIME magazine article called "I Never Knew..." on March 19, 1951.

There is also a photo available from LOOK magazine in 1949. It shows Rosemary Williams putting on makeup. Stanley Kubrick was the photographer.

Rosemary Williamson was listed as a show girl in the 1949/1950 comedy/musical "As the Girls Go" in New York.

We don't know what other shows she was in, if any.

If any of our readers know the current whereabouts of Rosemary Williamson, we'd really like to hear from you. Email us at

    Hello! I do not know her whereabouts, however, my mom grew up with her and they were best friends in their teens. She was raised by her Aunt Mamie in Dayton, OH.
