Hall of Fame
Mary Catherine Campbell Townley was crowned Miss America in 1922 and again in 1923, becoming the only two-time winner in the pageant’s history.
Her picture was submitted to the famed contest by her boyfriend while she was a student at East High School.
She later attended Ohio State University and Ohio Wesleyan Universities.
Always shy and embarrassed about her reign as Miss America, she rarely discussed it and many of her friends in adult life never knew she wore the coveted crown.
