The first foto below is of the 1945 contest. Given that it was the "First Revue" of the sponsoring group, we can tentatively date it as the first such contest.

The next foto is from 1968, and definitively labels the contest as being in its 24th year. Did it end then, amidst the tumult of the era?

It has been my experience that every time I pointed a camera at a girl she would cover her face or run away. Never could figure that one out.
