The Inter-City Beauty Contest (Miss America Pageant) did not exist in 1932, however, San Antonio continued crowning their Miss San Antonio.
Galveston, Texas replaced their International Pageant of Pulchritude with Galveston’s Personality Contest. Seventeen beauty contest winners from four southwestern states competed in the contest including Billie Elwood as Miss San Antonio 1932. No record has been found on how Billie Elwood won the title of Miss San Antonio 1932.
Billie Elwood won Miss Personality 1932 and was given $150 and a flight to New York.
Ms. Elwood could have competed in Atlantic City if the contest had not been discontinued. Because of this, her title was not associated with the Inter-City Beauty Contest (Miss America Pageant).
