The originals of the photos that were part of Stormé's personal collection (they're marked as such) are now part of The Stormé DeLarverié Collection at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York Public Library.

Stormé's Senior High School Photo, 1942

From scan of the 1942 High School Yearbook for her school

Stormy Dale, c 1946-1949 

Here are the three Bloom Chicago publicity photos (two of which may only exist as newspaper clippings now) and some clippings mentioning Stormy Dale.

The Bloom Chicago photos were from 1946 or earlier (her family had at least one in late December/early Jan 1947. 

The earliest print reference I can find with the name Stormy Dale is just after that, in Feb 1947. The latest that I've found (that's not a reminiscence) is Oct 1949.

That doesn't mean she only used the names those years, just that those are the only clippings I've yet found.

The two headshots were probably taken between the time of the Stormy Dale photos and the time Stormé started with the Jewel Box Revue. Thank you to Brooke of CampBooks for allowing me to use her scans!
