DeDe Lind (born Diane Lind on April 15, 1947 in Los Angeles, California)[1] is an American glamour model famous for her appearance in Playboy magazine as the Playmate of the Month for August 1967.

Playboy[edit]

Lind's photographer friend, Leon, talked her into testing for Playboy. At 19, she was selected to be the Playboy Playmate for August 1967. The photography was done by Mario Casilli. The accompanying article made no mention of Lind's marriage or existing offspring. Lind received more fan mail than any other Playboy Playmate in history.[2][3]

Her color likeness traveled to space. [4] The November 1969 Playboy calendar photo of Lind was on Apollo XII. The ground crew for the mission stashed the photo, which they labeled MAP OF A HEAVENLY BODY inside a locker aboard the command module Yankee Clipper.[5] Astronaut Richard Gordon, the commander of the Yankee Clipper, put the photo up for auction in 2011[6] for a minimum bid of $1000.[7]

Later career[edit]

Lind appeared in the December 1979 issue of Playmates Forever and, in the early 1980s, in the first "Playmate Playoffs" special issue. Her video appearances for Playboy included Race Horses and a frontal-nudity appearance on a sailing yacht. She was also the subject for "Playmates Revisted" in the March 1996 issue.
