Frontiers of America 1960 Cotillion

An annual cotillion was held by the Frontiers of America, an African-American service organization locally chartered in 1950. The pictured event was held at the Frederick Armory in April of 1960. Seventeen young ladies dressed in white danced the night away with their tuxedo-ed escorts. George P. Ambush was president of the organization and George E. Dredden acted as master of ceremonies for the evening. Bernice Monroe of Baltimore was the choreographer. Proceeds from the event benefited national health causes.
