Try to use proper English and/or proof read. It is Florida, with a capital F.
Anyway, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_West
or ask any old guy. She had her face painted on many American war planes during WWII. Life vests used by the military, principally the Coast Guard & Navy, are called Mae Wests. Look at her photos and the reason is obvious.
She had her photos glued to many lockers, both in the military and in school/colleges. You can probably find much more about her in your local public library.Source(s): life; google
