Not much is known about her after winning the Miss Universe title, Nolan kept a largely private life after her victory. According to some websites written by Argentines who lived during the 1960s, however, she became a symbol to the Argentine youth, as Argentina was going through a difficult period, having cut ties with Ecuador recently, among other things.
