1922 Miss America Pageant - Mary Katherine Campbell wins
Mary Katherine Campbell, Miss Columbus, Ohio, won the 1922 Miss America Pageant, the second winner of what was now becoming a famous beauty pageant.
Mary Katherine Campbell, Miss America 1922-1923, the only contestant to win the title twice.
She might not have known what a winning body was, but she clearly was flaunting one, as she not only won the 1922 bathing beauty review, but returned the following year to win the Miss America title again, beating returning Miss America 1921, Margaret Gorman, in the process...and making her the only woman to win the Miss America crown twice.
It is the only accomplishment of its type in Miss America history (although Rosemary LaPlanche, the first runner-up to Miss America 1940, did return to win the following year to finally win the Miss America 1941 title. After her victory, rules were changed to ban contestants from competing in the national pageant more than once).
