Miss America 1923, the 3rd Miss America pageant, was held at the Million Dollar Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 7, 1923.[1][2] The incumbent, 17 year old Mary Katherine Campbell, successfully retained her title due primarily to her victory in the bathing suit competition exhibiting "an almost perfect figure."[3]

Campbell is the only Miss America to win the title twice. She stated that she was very surprised to have won and was in fact rooting for one of the other girls to win.[4]

Joseph Cummings Chase, one of the judges at the pageant said, "Miss Campbell is possessed of great vivacity and an inherent shyness that constitute a wonderful combination. She is typically American and altogether an ideal type. Her forebearers for ten generations have been American born."[5]
