Miss America 1967, the 40th Miss America pageant, was held at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 10, 1966[1]. It was televised in the United States on NBC.

Although an entry representing the city of Tulsa had been victorious in the 1926 pageant, Jane Anne Jayroe became the first woman with the title of Miss Oklahoma to win the crown.

Jayroe's unique performance in the talent competition had her conducting the Miss America orchestra while singing Len Barry hit "1-2-3." She later became an executive with Oklahoma's state tourism bureau and an Oklahoma City television news anchor.
