Miss USA Pageants in Long Beach

The Miss USA Pageant was created by the swimsuit maker Catalina after 1950 Miss America winner Yolanda Betbeze refused to pose for publicity photos wearing a bathing suit. The very first Miss USA Pageant took place in 1952 in Long Beach, California. It was held concurrently with the 1952 Miss Universe Pageant in the Long Beach Municipal Auditorium and contestants from 38 states participated. The winner of the Miss USA 2952 title was Jackie Loughery of New York.
