Marjorie Wallace became the first Miss United States to be crowned Miss World. The United States' representative had previously finished as first runner-up on five occasions, in 1954, 1955, 1956, 1965, and 1969. Wallace would also become the first winner not to complete her reign when she was fired in March 1974, because she had "failed to fulfill the basic requirements of the job". She was never officially replaced by any of her runners-up.
