F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby

Princton was an all-male university in 1916 and for decades afterwards.   F. Scott Fitzgerald was in the Triangle Club which put on plays.  

He posed for a publicity photo for a production of The Evil Eye, which he co-wrote, which was printed in The New York Times on January 2, 1916. The newspaper called him "the most beautiful" show girl in the production.  However having failed his exams he was not allowed to perform.
