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.
