117464_ad1Alice Denham (born January 21, 1933 in Jacksonville, Florida) is an American model, writer and scholar. She was Playboy magazine‘s Playmate of the Month for the July 1956 issue. Her centrefold was photographed by Mike Shea and Lawrence Tirschel.

Denham posed for other men’s magazines during her modelling career, but she was as well known for her academic achievements as for her physical attributes. She earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina in 1949 and a master’s degree from the University of Rochester in 1950, and is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa society. Her writing talents were obvious to Playboy; several Playmates have written the text that accompanied their pictorials, but Denham is the only Playmate to have written a short story that was published in the same issue as her centrefold.

Denham pursued a career in writing and education. She’s written several short stories and novels, including Amo and My Darling from the Lions, and taught creative writing at the City College of New York, where she served as an adjunct professor of English from 1970 to 1980. She also held fiction-writing seminars at the University of Toronto for several years. According to The Playmate Book, she has completed her memoirs and also is writing a non-fiction book about her family’s “migration from South Carolina and Scotland to Florida at the time of the Seminole Indian Wars.”
