She thought the trip would last for two weeks; bidding farewell to her boyfriend, she schedule her return home in two weeks, after she was crowned Miss American. Harrison was "devastated", and so deeply disappointed over losing that she wept backstage.
In August 1965, Medavoy obtained a "personality test" for her at 20th Century Fox.
She was a regular cast member of the 1969-70 NBC television series Bracken's World.
She was the second wife of film producer Richard D.
Harrison followed her 1964 win by entering the Miss Maryland beauty pageant, a preliminary event to the Miss American pageant, itself the final preliminary event to the Miss International contest, which would be held in Long Beach, California, in mid-June 1965.
Harrison won the contest over nineteen other girls; that June, as Miss Maryland, she flew to California for the Miss American contest.
The Anglo-Welsh Harrisons had been resident for generations in West Kirby, Cheshire, when one Richard Harrison (1593–1653), son of another Richard Harrison (1559–1617), emigrated in the early 17th century from West Kirby to the New Haven Colony in what is now Connecticut, thence to Maryland.
