Playboy Magazine, Second Issue, January 1954

Margie Harrison is an American actress and model. She was Playmate of the Month for both January 1954 and June 1954. While Marilyn Monroe preceded her as a Playboy “Sweetheart of the Month”, Monroe did not appear in the center pages, but was pictured on pages 16 to 18. Harrison is therefore the first model designated “Playmate of the Month.” Like Monroe, her photo was purchased from the John Baumgarth Company, which specialized in pin-up calendars. According to The Playmate Book, Harrison also appeared in the men’s magazines Follies and Gala.
