The Most Beautiful Girl

In 1952, Armi Kuusela, born August 20, 1934, won the title "Miss Finland" in her homeland national beauty contest. She received a box of chocolates and a round-trip ticket to the United States to participate in the very first Miss Universe contest.

Armi Helena Kuusela won the title and was thereafter touted as "The World's Most Beautiful Girl." She was seventeen, 5' 5" and 108 pounds.

She and her husband, Albert Williams, currently reside in San Diego, California.

Happy 77th Birthday, Ma'am.

Ho, ho! Did someone have a crush?

Shark, ho,ho, indeed. Not outside the realm of possibility as I too was seventeen when she was named Miss Universe. Not really though. I favored a flesh-and-blood girl much closer to home.
