Norma Nolan (born Norma Beatriz Nolan, April 22, 1938)[1] is an Argentine beauty queen who became first women from Argentina to obtain the Miss Universe title after she had won Miss Argentina. She won the title in Miami Beach, Florida. Nolan is of Irish and Italian descent. She was crowned Miss Argentina in 1962 from her predecessor, Adriana Gardiazábal who was second runner up in previous pageant.

Not much is known about her after winning the Miss Universe title, Nolan kept a largely private life after her victory. According to some websites written by Argentines who lived during the 1960s, however, she became a symbol to the Argentine youth, as Argentina was going through a difficult period, having cut ties with Ecuador recently, among other things.
