    Another thing... for some reason at some point the Beatrice Roberts pics appear to have been renamed "Beatrice Roberts (Beatrice Forbes-Robertson)" but I have no idea why. They are not the same person. If you have them as that they should be corrected.

    Added info, lots more photos and a question to this Beatrice Roberts album.

    IMDB indicates she also used the name Bernice Roberts. If that is correct then she would have performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1931. However... are Beatrice and Bernice really the same person?

    I added a photo (Hesser, I think) of Beatrice Roberts with blonde hair (wig) and the only pics I have of Bernice Roberts. They look like the same person to me but ...

    Ideas, opinions, wild guesses anyone?

From Press Photo backs:


Miss Beatrice Roberts representing New York at the National Beauty Pageant at Atlantic City, who rumor declares is the "Miss America of 1925." Miss Roberts was runner up to Miss Ruth Malcomson of Philadelphia last year's Miss America." 3/11/25 (published September 14, 1925)


Miss Beatrice Roberts, "Miss New York," who represented the Greater City in the National Beauty Pageant at Atlantic City last week, was awarded the middle cup in the photo for being the most beautiful girl in an evening gown. The cup on the left was won for the best appearance in the Roller Chair Parade, while the one on the right for being the most beautiful girl in the New York-New England division. The flowers are from the Philadelphia Boosters Club. These honors will make amends for losing the Miss America title. Miss Roberts was Miss Manhattan in 1924. September 13, 1924 (misdated, published September 17, 1925)
