      Youth: In order to flee her terrible home-life, 16 year-old Norma Jeane Baker married a U.S. Navy man and moved to Catalina Island, California. A selection of remarkable photos from the future Marilyn Monroe's life during this period have surfaced and are on display at the Catalina Island Museum through October.

      Marilyn Monroe—née Norma Jeane Mortenson, though she was quickly baptized Norma Jeane Baker—married James Dougherty in 1942, when she was just 16. In 1943, her husband joined the Merchant Marines and was stationed on Catalina Island, off the coast of Southern California. This photo was taken during the year that she lived with him on the island. Source: FB Purple Clover

    "When Monroe (then named Norma Jeane Baker) was just sixteen, she married a neighbor in order to escape her foster home life. Jim Doughtery, her young husband, was sent to Catalina during World War II and brought Monroe along, according to the Catalina Island Museum. This time proved to be transformative for Monroe." Jim Doughtery was a Sailor! ♥
