242. Carnival Beauties: LYDIA TINZON, Candidate, Miss Philippines 1939

LOVELY LYDIA. Miss Lydia Tinzon (or Tingson) of Far 
Eastern University, was sponsored by Graphic Magazine. 

The 1939 Philippine Exposition was to be our last national fair, and, as a gesture of final support, the esteemed Graphic's Magazine fielded the accomplished Lydia Tinzon as its official candidate to the 1939 search for Miss Philippines.

Miss Tinzon, from Canlubang, Laguna was a co-ed of Far Eastern University at the time of the contest, and was one of the beauteous muses of the university ROTC. The last Miss Philippines title, however, went to Iluminada Tuason.
