Atlantic City in Atlantic County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Vonda Van Dyke
— Miss America 1965 —
When asked about the so-called Now Generation Vonda Key replied, "Some of their demands are no doubt justified…but many do the things they do just to be spectacular. Sure they have some legitimate gripes. But why not approach the problem positively....I'm certainly not going to judge anybody. I have tried to have some sort of philosophy—mine is faith in God—and this serves as a base."
John Huddy, "Vonda Isn't Afraid To Sing About God," The Miami Herald, 9/14/1969, p1
Erected by Miss America Organization.
