Miss America 1922, the 2nd Miss America pageant, was held at the Million Dollar Pier in Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 7, 1922.[1][2][3] Joining the contestants during the "bathing revue," the parade of beauty pageant hopefuls, were the Mayor of Atlantic City and the entire police force, all wearing their bathing attire.[4]

Mary Katherine Campbell, competing as Miss Columbus in the pageant, edged out the previous year's winner, Margaret Gorman, who competed as "Miss America" in the 1922 event, to claim the Inter-City Beauty title. Campbell then competed against "Professional" beauty winner Dorothy Knapp and "Amateur" beauty winner Gladys Greenmayer to win the title of Miss America for 1922.[5]
