BOBBIE ALLERT (Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota)
With her nose in a book, Bobbie looks up long enough to say “When I’m not reading I really like to dance.” But equally as well she likes collecting wee objects, what for? – – oh must for the fun of it. Then too she confesses a weakness for ice cream sodas and malts, but woe unto anyone mentioning carrots or cauliflower! In school, Literature is her favorite study. She is partial to blue or pink. Her secret ambition is to be an actress, write a book, and go around the world.

Bobbie Allert — Minneapolis, Minnesota
Say hello to Bobbie Allert, at her aims just take a look,
She wants to be an actress, see the world and write a book,
As for her favorite pastime, she could dance the livelong day,
She thinks there’s nothing quite as swell to pass the time away.
From the 1942 Mar-Ken Yearbook, as a Junior:
In the cold city of Minneapolis, Minn. on January 17th, Bobbie Allert took her first breath. Her desire is to become a dancer in pictures. She does a great deal of reading and her favorite book is “Trelawny.” Her every word is “Are you kiddin’?”, and she hates people who talk too much.
