Atlantic City in Atlantic County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
— Miss America 1921 —
"This is my first introduction to Atlantic City and everything here is new to me, very interesting and I am almost convinced I am in fairyland. Happy? Why am I the happiest girl in the whole wide world, and I have every reason to think so. No, I have not received any invitation to enter the screen field, I don't know just what I would do if such an offer came to me."
