1954 Miss Universe Miriam Stevenson

Miriam Jacqueline Stevenson was born 4 July 1933, of Winnsboro in South Carolina. She won the Miss USA pageant as Miss South Carolina USA in 1954. She was the first Miss USA to hold the Miss Universe beauty crown.

The third edition of Miss Universe was held on 24 July 1954, at Long Beach Municipal Auditorium, Long Beach, California, USA. They had 33 young ladies in the competition. Miss USA, 21-year-old Miriam Stevenson, won the competition. She became the first American to win the Miss Universe competition.

The pageant that year was very interesting as a statistical tie between her and Brazil’s Martha Rocha happened. The tie-breaking decision eventually came down to who’s physically sexier. The title went to her because of her “fitter” hips. Stevenson out of goodwill gave the car she won as part of her prize to Martha Rocha.

As part of the pageant prize, a contract with Universal Studios allowed her to have a one-year stint in Hollywood. Miriam however surprised everyone when she decided to return home to South Carolina in order to complete her education.

While there, she appeared as host of some local television shows. During this time, she met and married Donald Upton – an artist, writer and politician. They had two children. She remained a media personality through the 1970′s as an actress, commercial model and beauty pageant judge.
