"Miss America 1944 hopes to achieve a screen career or hope to gain a place in the television field. But with a career, she hopes, too, to be a 'good wife' for some fortunate husband.... 'I first heard about the Miss America Contest then [at twelve years of age] and I have wanted to come here ever since, not with the hope of winning, but just to take part in the excitement and glamour of the contest.'"

Ollie Crawford, "New Miss America Has Busy Day," Atlantic City Daily Press, 9/11/1944, p. 1
 
Erected by Miss America Organization.
