|Title||Peggy Maddieux, Miss Seattle 1927, probably in Seattle, 1927 |
|Caption||Eleanor Peggy (Peggins) Maddieux graduated from Broadway High School in Seattle and became Miss Seattle in 1927. She met Warren G. Magnuson while attending a beauty pageant in Washington D.C. in that same year; they wed in June 1928. Although the marriage lasted only six years due to Magnuson's infidelities, they remained lifelong friends. Peggins willingly delayed the divorce until after the 1934 election in which Magnuson became King County prosecutor, marking the beginning of his 44 years of public service during which he represented the state in the U.S. House and Senate.|
In this 1927 photograph, Maddieux is serving coffee to an unidentified man at an event, most likely in her role as Miss Seattle.
