Official Preliminary to Miss Texas and Miss America Scholarship Competitions

Miss San Antonio America 1925, Virgina Wheat
Local Pageant Information:

Empire Theater, 226 N. St. Mary's, San Antonio, Texas
May 11-15, 1925


Two events to select a Miss San Antonio 1925 have been found.

Virginia Wheat was selected as Miss San Antonio 1925 during the Empire-Blum's Bathing Beauty Review at the Empire Theater on May 15, 1925.

A second, earlier selection event was a Bathing Revue during the Water Carnival held at San Pedro Park on April 25, 1925.  No records have been found on the Miss San Antonio winner at the Water Carnival.

The two contestants from San Antonio competed in the annual Galveston Revue for a chance to win a trip to Atlantic City. They have consistently been listed as "Miss San Antonio, Virgina Wheat" and "Pearl Moses from San Antonio."  It is possible Miss Moses was the winner of the Water Carnival Revue.  Based on available documentation Miss San Antonio America 1925 was Virginia Wheat.

Neither Virginia Wheat nor Pearl Moses competed in the Inter-City Beauty Contest in Atlantic City.
