Monroe's Past Uncovered With Lost Items
The memorabilia - including personal notes, photographs, financial documents, furs, jewellery and perfume - were packed up in the immediate aftermath of the star's death from a barbiturates overdose in 1962.
The archives were recovered from her Los Angeles home by her former business manager Inez Melson - employed by late American baseball player Joe DiMaggio to "keep an eye" on the movie star during their marriage.
U.S. magazine Vanity Fair will tell the saga of the rare artifacts in its upcoming October (08) edition, which features a photo of the iconic blonde bombshell on its cover.
