Miss NASA, 1968

io9 has posted info about the ultimate rocket girl (at least before the emergence of female astronauts).
The lovely lady in this photograph is Miss NASA 1968. Artifacting found a handful of photographs of Miss NASAs from the late 1960s and early 1970s, and NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver mentioned a 1968 Miss NASA pageant in her Women@NASA keynote speech this past spring. There's little information online about these pageants, however. Anyone familiar with the Miss NASA competition?
