WORLD'S SECOND MISS AMERICA
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's second Miss America?

Mary Katherine Campbell was the winner of the title “Miss America” the second year of the pageant’s history. In addition to this title, she was also the only Miss America to receive the title twice.

The first time she won was in 1922 and she competed as Miss Columbus, Ohio. She was also only fifteen at the time, which was against pageant rules however, she lied on her application so that she could compete. She competed the next year in 1923, once again representing Columbus, Ohio and won the title for the second time. In 1924, she competed once again as Miss Columbus and although she did not win that pageant, she was very close to acquiring the crown for a third time. This prompted the Miss America officials to instate a rule in which a Miss America could only be awarded the title once.

Margaret Gorman was the first Miss America before her and Ruth Malcomson won the year after her second win, in 1924.
