We’ve unearthed a Livingston County TV gem: The 1955 appearance on the show “What’s My Line?” by Miss America contestant Margaret Devereaux from Howell.

Devereaux was Miss Michigan in 1955 – the only Miss Michigan ever from Livingston County – and she competed in the Miss America pageant that year.
