1966 Cancellation[edit]

When Ingrid Finger was crowned as Miss International 1965, the city of Long Beach had decided to discontinue the pageant permanently, due to its competition Miss Universe being popular in the country (before it was staged in this city from 1952-1959, before moving to Miami Beach, Florida in 1960). However, the pageant organizers decided to continue the pageant due to increase in tourism and marking Finger the longest Miss International titleholder for 2 years and 10 months. The city of Long Beach would host the Miss International pageant once more from 1971-1972.
