Ronald Reagan in Swimwear Tidbits

Ronald Reagan as a lifeguard in Lowell Park, Illinois. 1927

Reagan employed as a life guard at Lowell Park in Dixon, where, in the next seven summers, he was credited with saving 77 lives.


Reagan signed as a contract player for Warner Bros. in 1937 and in 1945 he signed a million dollar contract with the same.

Catalina’s association with Warner Brothers costume designer Orry Kelly and makeup artist Perc Westmore helped them gain access to such stars as Ronald Reagan and Marilyn Monroe as models for their swimwear.

Not bad for a President I'd say.
