Betty Marion White was born on January 17, 1922, in Illinois, and it didn't take her long to start making waves in the entertainment industry. Even before she gained television stardom, she appeared on several different radio shows throughout the 1940s—including her own, The Betty White Show. Her career would soar through several more decades, and as it enters another one, she's become revered as a larger-than-life cultural icon. In addition to this gorgeous shot, taken at a Los Angeles Zoo gala in 2015 when White was 93, here are some of our favorite photos of her through the years.
