The Miss Wool of America Collection

The Miss Wool of America Pageant took place annually from 1952-1972 in San Angelo to celebrate its strong sheep and wool industry -- San Angelo’s Producers' Livestock Auction is the nation’s largest for sheep and lambs, and the city was once known as the Inland Wool Capital of the World. Sponsored by the National Wool Growers Association, the American Sheep Producers Council, and the Wool Bureau, Inc., the highlight of the national pageant, which brought together the Miss Wools of each state for a competition of poise and beauty, was the modeling of wool fashions for the upcoming season.  The winner represented the wool industry nationally for the following year, touring the country in all the latest woolen fashions. See The KCTV News Collection for additional footage of the Miss Wool of America Pageant.
