Photograph was edited for publication purposes; Photograph was used for an article dated May 22, 1965. It reads, "Valley's fairest - Edy Williams, current Miss San Fernando Valley, tomorrow night will crown the new queen at the 11th annual beauty pageant at Knollwood Country Club."
Photograph article dated May 25, 1964 partially reads, "When Edy Williams of Studio City became "Miss San Fernando Valley" last night, she was just doing what comes naturally. For Miss Williams, a statuesque, 22-year-old brunette, is no novice at this beauty business. She placed second in last year's "Miss Valley" contest. She also won the titles of "Miss Los Angeles" and "Miss Bikini" in 1963. In fact, last year her beauty and charm gave her a virtual monopoly among the bathing suit posing set - she won a total of 12 trophies." Note: Ms. Williams is pictured with a man identified as actor Lyle Talbot, the honorary mayor of Studio City.
