"At almost 26, the oldest girl to become Miss America…says 'My career was already on its way prior to becoming Miss America. I had graduated from the Pasadena Playhouse and was completing my doctorate in theater at the University of Utah. After my year I had a very active career on Broadway, but I felt that the title did interfere as it tended to typecast me. To me, Miss America was not the beginning as so many of the younger girls."
