Atlantic City in Atlantic County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Miss America 1961
When asked, "Are American women usurping males in the world, and are they too dominant? She said, 'I agree that there are too many women working in the world. A woman's place is in the home with her husband and children. After she has raised a family she can decide whether she wants to work.'"1
Five years later, while putting her husband through law school Nancy said again, "I'd like to stay home, raise three children; and when they're all in school, maybe have my own television show for women."2 After raising two children she did just that.
