Carolyn Cameron ‘Miss Bloomington’ 1950

Miss Bloomington, 1950.

In July 1950, 19-year-old Carolyn Cameron of Pekin was crowned Jaycees’ “Miss Bloomington” 1950. Cameron, an Illinois Wesleyan University student, bested 26 other young woman for the honor.
Seen here on the old Bloomington High School stage behind Cameron were the runner-ups: Carolyn Dowse, Sue Williams, Janet Lagesen, and Donna Dorland.
