National Potato Chip Queen

The first Potato Chip Queen apparently was nominated in 1946.

The next gal I can find won in 1949. The caption also introduces the irreplaceable term "spud wafers," which I intend to use from now on.


Here is a pic from their 1948 convention.

I find evidence the NPCI existed as late as 1957.

But as for Potato Chip Queens after 1949, no luck. I think the NPCI is also defunct.

Not after the first few hungry incidents, I suspect, Brian.
