Overview:

The title "Miss San Antonio" is used by many organizations and often complicates the process of finding the titleholder associated with the Miss America System.

In 1923 Vera Simpson played the role of Miss San Antonio in movies but her title was not associated with the Miss America Pageant.

Miss Katherine Hensley was chosen as the first Miss San Antonio to compete at the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey with ninety-nine other contestants from select cities in the United States and Canada.
