In this 1946 image taken by photographer Joseph Jasgur and released by Julien's Auctions, a photo of Norma Jean Dougherty, who eventually changed her name to Marilyn Monroe, is shown. A bankruptcy judge in Florida ruled earlier this week that photos taken of Monroe will be sold at auction to settle the debts of the photographer. Jasgur's photos, negatives and image copyrights will be sold in December by Julien's Auctions. (AP Photo/Julien's Auctions, Joseph Jasgur)
