2007 Beauty Pageant Sponsorship
I get the occasional request to sponsor this and that, and when the a
sponsorship makes sense, and would fit in to Retro-Housewife.com, (and I
can afford it), I do! Actually, this is the first sponsorship Retro
Housewife is doing. I thought it sounded like fun! We'll see how it
goes, and hopefully our little beauty contestant will do well!
Without further ado, here she is!

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. AP
- That grandmother of beauty contests, the Miss America Pageant, turns 35 next week, but
Atlantic City never loved her more.
..."Some 25,000 persons usually watch the final night of the pageant." ...
"I'VE BEEN TO some of these other contests and I know what they're like," said Mrs. John M. Alton, chairman of the hostess committee for the pageant. "The finest young girls from good families come here. Because we have careful controls, we don't have any of these wild show type things like the others." ...
"Miss America sure ain't a leg show anymore," an oldtimer said. "The girls today are nearly all good clean college kids. It's a change from the old days. I remember some of the bags they used to bring in here."
From the Independent-Press-Telegram, Long Beach, CA September 3rd, 1961
But just who or what is Miss America? To some, including the executive director of the pageant, Miss Lenora Slaughter, she's the "all America girl -lovely to look at, talented, charming, well-educated and eminently respectable."
