1944. Birth. Los Angeles.

The woman who most of us recognize as Paige Young, Playboy Playmate of November 1968, was born Diana Lee Cotterell on March 16, 1944, at the Griffith Park Maternity Home located at 1933 Griffith Park Boulevard.  Her birth certificate records the area as “Hollywood.”

Diana’s older sister Constance Susan Cotterell was born at the same maternity center in 1942. It was designed as a “birthing center” for mothers of the Christian Science religion aka Church of Christ Science.

The birthing center was well established by 1931 and continued in that capacity for decades.

It became a senior center in the 50s or 60s and was demolished in 2016 on the day of my visit.
