🌟 Adopt a Piece of History! 🌟
If you’re fascinated by history and love unique memorabilia, adopting Frances Langford’s fighting chair might just be the perfect opportunity for you! Frances Langford was a renowned entertainer and actress who brought comfort and joy to countless soldiers during World War II through her heartfelt performances and bedside visits. Her dedication to the troops was immortalized in her column, Purple Heart Diary, which later became a film.

Langford’s chair isn’t just a piece of furniture; it’s a symbol of her adventurous spirit and passion for fishing, a beloved pastime she enjoyed in her later years in Florida. This white leather fighting chair from her boat, the Fran-E, holds a special place in history. Not only was it where she spent many happy hours, but it was also the spot where she reeled in a 50-pound dolphin to win 1st Place in a fishing tournament—an incredible achievement given her petite stature.

By adopting this chair, you’re not just acquiring a unique piece of history; you’re also supporting the preservation of stories like Frances Langford’s, ensuring they continue to inspire and educate future generations. Discover more about this incredible artifact and others at the Elliott Museum’s "Adopt Something" program by visiting bit.ly/AdoptSomething
