Miss America 1942 Jo-Carroll Dennison

Miss America 1942 - Jo-Carroll Dennison (TX)

Original Caption: "SHE CAN SING, TOO - Even in wartime, that lucky little group of fellows got together in Atlantic City last month, looked over America's lovliest gals, and chose Jo Carroll Dennison, a flashing-eyed beauty from Tyler, Texas, as Miss America 1942. The judges said they also like Jo's rendition of "Deep in the Heart of Texas." Frances Burke, Miss America 1940, does the crowning." (CBI Roundup, Vol. I, No. 7, Delhi, Thursday, October 29, 1942)

Miss America 1924 - "beauty" was so different then. No fake tans, or bleached teeth... would love our society to value inner and natural beauty the way it used to be.

Miss America differs much from how it started, but the swimsuit aspect of the competition still remains

miss america1925. I love the idea of beauty back then. A very different aesthetic.
