Atlantic City in Atlantic County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Miss America 1969
"I do not feel that Miss America is the 'ideal' American girl. Each person has his own idea of what is ideal and no one girl could possible represent America's ideal, 'Nor do I feel that Miss America is the 'average' American girl....In my opinion, Miss America is a girl who is talented, intelligent, and pretty, and who has the desire and determination....It is a title of which I am extremely proud."
Judith Ford, personal correspondence, Miss America Organization Archives, Atlantic City
