After succumbing to a long battle with cancer, the 62-year-old Farrah Fawcett continues to be honored nearly 2 years after her death in 2009. Longtime companion Ryan O’Neal donated the red swimsuit that made Fawcett into an icon to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
Aside from the swimsuit, People mag reports other items of Farrah Fawcett donated to the Smithsonian on Wednesday include “an original copy of the swimsuit poster, a leather-bound book of Fawcett’s personal copies of scripts for the first season of Charlie’s Angels, a Fawcett swimsuit jigsaw puzzle, a “Farrah Phenomenon” 1976 edition of TV Guide, an original 1977 Farrah Fawcett doll and a “Farrah’s Glamour Center” hairstyling toy.”
Farah Fawcett’s items will join the collection in the museum’s pop culture history section.
