Miss America 1936, the 10th Miss America pageant, was held at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 12, 1936.[1] Despite winning three of the pageant's contests ("most beautiful girl in evening gown," "most perfect model," and "Miss Outdoors Girl"), Miss Cook County was awarded 3rd runner-up. Miss Connecticut, the 2nd runner-up, won the "Miss Personality" prize, while Miss Philadelphia, Rose Coyle, tap danced her way to the "Talent Award" as well as winning the coveted crown.[2] Entrants from Pennsylvania took the top honor as well as capturing three other positions in the Top 15.
