1950 Illinois Cherry Blossom Princess Barbara Feeman

1950 Illinois Cherry Blossom Princess Barbara Feeman

Barbara Joan Freeman, in white coat second from left, was the Illinois State Society Cherry Blossom Princess for 1950 to represent Illinois in the National Cherry Blossom Festival, a signature spring event in DC since about 1928. She is joined by cherry blossom princesses representing 12 other states. By tradition from 1948 to 2012, the U.S. Cherry Blossom Queen is selected by a random spin of a wheel of fortune with all the state names on it. The Queen is invited to visit Japan by the Japan Cherry Blossom Association.
