  • Description

    In Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday, 9th September the finals of the competition to select Miss America 1960 were held in the City's Convention Hall, before a huge crowd of holiday-makers and a distinguished panel of judges.

    The ten finalists in the competition came from the states of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Hawaii, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Texas and Utah. They lined up first in full evening dress and proved themselves masters of the art of moving gracefully across the stage in long, billowing skirts. The ten girls were then called upon to perform a singing or dancing act, followed by a parade in swim suits across the huge stage.

    Finally, after a whole week of parading, performing and smiling Miss North Carolina was selected Miss America, and to the applause of the crowds she took her first steps along the path to fame - up the red carpet to take her place on the seat of honour, with an armful of flowers and wearing the beauty queen's crown.
