American Beauty Queen: Lota Cheek Wikipedia Bio
Lota Cheek is a late American beauty queen who got recognized as America's prettiest girl in 1921. Furthermore, she is also a winner of the NYC 1922 beauty contest as per various sources on the internet.
Furthermore, she was a successful actress in New York City who performed in four plays on Broadway under the name Lota Sanders and served as a music teacher. This information got shared by one of the YouTubers named Lornicopia, who believes to be her cousin.
The IBDB page has listed her credits for Broadway performances under the same name from the 1920s to the 1930s, and we presume it might be her. The credits include Cafe, The Man from Toronto, Simon Called Peter, and That Awful Mrs. Eaton.
However, a source revealed that the beauty queen was involved in a scandalous divorce case with Tyrell Davis/Harry Davis in 1922 as her husband married another woman. By 1925, she was remarried and took the name of her new husband, David Sanders.
