Neva Langley, Miss Georgia, won the 1953 Miss America Pageant on September 6, 1952.  A native Floridian, she was attending Georgia's Wesleyan Conservatory when she was encouraged to enter the Miss Georgia pageant. A virtual shoe-in for the crown, no one was surprised when judges announced her as Miss America 1953. She was crowned by outgoing queen, Colleen Kay Hutchins, Miss America 1952, of Utah.
