Virginia Lee, Miss New York City, was 1st Professional at Miss America 1921. Some sources quote as being the winner of the professional division at Miss America 1921, but that's not accurate. 1st Professional is the equivalent to 1st Runner Up today.
Virginia Lee, along with 7 other contestants competed in Atlantic City's Inter-City Beauty Contest, later to be known as Miss America 1921. And though she was able to best 6 other contestants, Margaret Gorman, ultimately walked away with title.
