Photograph article dated August 4, 1962 partially reads, "A 16-year-old Kansas girl, in Los Angeles this week to accept the 'Miss Teen of 1962' title, took time from her schedule to give her opinions on the basic causes of teen-age troubles. Brown-haired, blue eyed Debbie Bryant of Overland Park was selected over thousands of other girls from 50 states in the Teen Magazine contest judged on over-all beauty, poise and personality. According to Miss Bryant, 'boredom resulting from too much time on your hands' and lack of adult interest in the youth of America are responsible for teen-age problems."
