Miss America 1937, the 11th Miss America pageant, was held at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 11, 1937.[1] Shortly after being presented as Miss America, the newly crowned 17-year-old winner, Bette Cooper, left Atlantic City and returned home. Once there, she missed scheduled appointments on her first day as Miss America, as well as a theater appearance and a trip to Hollywood. Her father cited illness as the reason.[2] Though not placing in the top five, representatives from different areas of New York captured three of the semi-finalist positions.
