Default Mystery Autograph Help Part 2 (likely entertainment)

Part two my of pleading for help in identifying a few autographs I have had hanging around here for too long. If anyone recognizes any please let me know :-)

Here are the clues I know about them:

Autographs 1 and 2 came from a collection of mostly 1948 - 1951 entertainment autographs, gathered in the New York area and mostly consisting of big movie names, newer television names, jazz names, and a lot of hollywood actors who were blacklisted and now working in New York in various venues.

Autograph 3 is likely from the mid 1950's from a collection mostly consisting of actors gathered at the MGM studios in California

Autograph 4 is likely a music or movie related star that would have been signed in the early 1990's. It's noted as Dionne Warwick but I don't think it's her. Obtained through the mail, the collector pencil wrote the initial on the reverse of who he sent it to so he could recognize it when it came back, this one has a D.W. on it.

Autographs 5 and 6 are the same signer and came from the same collection as number 4, obtained through the mail

Autograph 6 was obtained likely in the 1970's or early 1980's, likely a scientist of some type, and came from a large collection of FDC's with most signers matching or obviously related to the subject matter of the cover. There were some foreign names in the collection as well that I would have struggled with if there wasn't a notation of who it was. This one had no notation obviously.

Lastly, I may have shown a couple of these before and if so I apologize, though it never hurts to shoot for a fresh set of eyes on them.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Update: First autograph has been identified

#1 Jinx Falkenburg (thanks Michael )

Top left is Jinx Falkenburg. Actress on t.v. and radio. Was on magazine covers in the 1940's. She signed with her married name also, McCrary. She was married to publicist and radio personality Tex McCrary. They were known as Tex and Jinx and had a popular radio talk show.

I would agree that #4 is not Dionne Warwick. I remember her signing with a very elongated D with the rest of her first name inside it. It is not Dinah Washington who had a very legible signature.

Sorry I can't identify the actual autograph but number 5, the bookplate, is more than likely an author, as publishers get bookplates signed to paste in books or send out from requests rather than have the bulkier books done.

Thanks for the info. I fear I likely won't every figure out the bookplates on my own unless someone happens to recognize it. I've looked at them quite a bit and just can't seem to come up with anything. Regarding the genre, I am leaning towards it more than likely being a singer or an actor, rather than an author. The reason I think that could be is because the collection it came from was rather large (over 1000 autographs and all obtained by the same collector or by him through the mail), and maybe contained only half a dozen or so bookplates. But, they were all this same style of bookplate and the others were signed by Dolly Parton, Kenny Loggins, Frank Sinatra Jr, Clint Eastwood, and Tony Bennett.

The bookplate is not something that the publisher would use to place in a book to be sold as signed. They would use a nice big, usually adhesive style, sticker/bookplate that would have a large blank space for the person to sign. Many of those would have a nice black/blue/gold border. The ones you have are the ones you could buy pre-gummed in a box of 25 - 50 at a place like Barnes & Nobles or a stationery store.

The bookplates are actually the type that are used to identify that a particular book came from someone's library:

ex libris
ˌeks ˈlēbris/

adverb
1. used as an inscription on a bookplate to show the name of the book's owner.
"ex libris Edith Wharton"

noun
1. a bookplate inscribed to show the name of the book's owner.

So, the signature could be anyone, not necessarily an author.

Thus the ones you would buy in a bookstore or stationery store.
