Yesterday: Queens on display

Before his death, Henry Bernhardt furnished the Post with several pictures taken from the old Rowan Christmas Parade, which became the Holiday Caravan. This photograph from Nov. 29, 1961, shows some of the queens and parade-board members involved in that year’s event. Seated, from left to right, are Peg O’Neill, chaperone; Miss America Maria Beale Fletcher; Miss North Carolina Susan Kay Woodall; N.C. Apple Queen Toni Jo Holshouser, who was also Miss Salisbury; and Miss Merry Christmas Nancy Stirewalt. Standing, from left to right, are Tony Alley, the Merchants Association president; Charles Young, the marshalling chairman; Norman Clarke, band chairman; Buddy Leonard, traffic safety and parade-board chairman; Clyde Miller, queens chairman; Larry Poteat, entries chairman; Dick Harvey, float-sales chairman; Paul Bernhardt, celebrities and special events co-chairman; Norman Ingle, grand marshal; Newton Cohen, awards and judges chairman; Fred Chandler, past board chairman and co-chairman of celebrities and special events; Bill Loeblein, president of Salisbury Jaycees and publicity chairman; and Executive Director Henry Bernhardt.
