TIME Magazine, September 20, 1948, p. 28:

    • In Atlantic City, Beatrice [Bebe] Shopp, 18 ("Miss Minnesota"), was named "Miss America of 1948," winning a $5,000 scholarship, a Nash car, and untold publicity. Her measurements: height, 5 ft. 9 in.; weight, 138 lbs.; bust, 37 in. Her talent: she played the vibraharp. Said "Bebe": "I am only a farm girl. I drive a tractor. I clean the chicken coops. I mix cement."

    • Up the coast at Asbury Park, Mrs. Maria Monez Strohmeier ("Mrs. Philadelphia"), a 21-year-old blonde with green eyes, was crowned "Mrs. America."

This entitled her to a fur coat, furniture, a dishwasher, laundry machine, luggage, and diaper service for any future children. Mrs. America was more nearly standard size: 5 ft. 5 in., 124 lbs.

TIME Magazine, September 15, 1958:

    ...Fact is that in 13 years, the Miss America Pageant has turned from a leering press-agent's dream into a sort of solemn, deep-breathing Rorschach test, as stickily wholesome as Atlantic City's famed saltwater taffy. The girls are chosen mascots of local civic and service clubs, are told to keep their eyes not on glamour but on more than $150,000 worth of scholarships contributed by business firms, and are constantly surrounded by ulcerescent chaperons, without whom they may not speak to any man, "including male members of their own families."

    ...Undisturbed by fathers, the girls scissored across the stage in evening gowns and swimsuits... The contestants also sang, played musical instruments, recited. Miss Georgia (Jeanette Arlene Ardell, 19, 35-24-36) punctured four balloons with her bow and only seven arrows; Miss Maryland (Mary Roberta Page, 18, 36-24-36) drew a horse in luminous chalk.

    At last the girls, in white ball gowns, paraded across a tangle of TV cables for M.C. Bert Parks ("Aren't they all perfectly beautiful ladeezandgennimum?")... The tearful winner: Miss Mississippi (Mary Ann Mobley, 21, 34-22-35).
