  • Shirley Temple Black


    One of the most beloved child stars in film history, Shirley Temple Black (1928–2014) went from Hollywood actor to distinguished diplomat in a life filled with adventure, fame, and service to her country. As a pint-sized star, she cheered Americans during the last years of the Depression. A talented performer, she was the number one box office draw for four years in a row and was awarded the first-ever juvenile Oscar.

Shirley Temple Black continued to be honored for her achievements in film and diplomacy, most recently at the 2006 Screen Actors Guild ceremony, where she was presented with their Life Achievement Award.
