reviewed Miss America, 1945: Bess Myerson's Own Story on
Unbeknowst to her, a press announcement of the Miss America Pageant's first scholarship award inspired her older syster, Sylvia, to send Bess's photo into the Miss New York City competition. Thanks to Bess's exceptional beauty, talent, and intelligence, Sylvia's determination, and a Pageant director set on changing the contest's "girlie" image into something more meaninful, By September, the 21-year-old Bess Myerson would be indentified , along with Albert Einstein, as "one of the most famous Jews in America."
