A Brenda Starr mystery

Can anyone ID this character? She was part of the cut Brenda Starr paper doll treasure trove I won recently on eBay.

Also: I never heard of Bill Blackbeard until I read his obit. He was obsessed with newspaper comic strips, and saved newspapers when libraries were tossing them in the garbage. His massive archive is now at Ohio State University. A great story, and newspaper and comic strip lovers are forever in his debt.

    Having found several of Blackbeard's books at flea markets, I use them when researching cartoonists who have had paper doll panels with their strips. These are very useful references.
