08 - DeDe Lind
Playmate of the Month August 1967. DeDe Lind (born Diane Lind on April 15, 1947 in Los Angeles, California) is a glamour model famous for her 1960s nude appearances in <i>Playboy</i> magazine. She now lives in Boca Raton, Florida
In 1961, at age 14, Lind was discovered at a local pool in Burbank by photographer Leon Beauchemin. This led to two appearances on the cover of <i>Teen</i> magazine. Small roles on "The Donna Reed Show" and "Leave it to Beaver" followed, and she did a few television commercials.
Lind's photographer friend Leon talked her into testing for <i>Playboy</i>. At 19, she was selected to be the <i>Playboy</i> Playmate for August 1967. The photography was done by Mario Casilli, but the accompaning article made no mention of "Miss August's" marriage or existing offspring. The magazine received a record number of fan mail. Lind received more fan mail than any other Playboy Playmate in history. She became one of the most popular Playmates of the 1960s.
Lind was no longer in demand as a teen model, but the <i>Playboy</i> appearance did open some doors for her. She modeled for some European magazines, but passed up most modelling assignments in order to have more time for herself.
DeDe remarried in the 1970s and continued her association with <i>Playboy</i>, attending special events and parties as well as Friday and Sunday night movies at the Playboy Mansion.
She appeared in the December 1979 issue of Playmates Forever and, in the early 1980s, in the first "Playmate Playoffs" special issue. Her video appearances for <i>Playboy</i> included <i>Race Horses</i> and a frontal-nudity appearance on a sailing yacht.
She retired in 1985 and moved to Florida with her husband. Three years later, they separated. DeDe began appearing at the Glamourcon shows in 1994, along with Cynthia Myers and Debra Jo Fondren.
