Pan Am's First Lady
The Diary of Betty Stettinius Trippe

Betty Stettinius Trippe


Paladwr Press is privileged to be able to re-publish the Diary of Betty Stettinius Trippe—as it was so named when it was published privately fourteen years ago. It is a revealing and intimate account by the wife of the man who created Pan American Airways, arguably the only airline in history which, during its greatest years, completely dominated the world's airways.

This is a vivid chronology of how Juan Trippe fashioned a global network, starting with a 90-mile route; it is also a portrait of two people: an industry leader, and his wife, companion, and confidante. It is a charming account involving contact with presidents and prime ministers, countless industry leaders, even an emperor and the Pope. Above all, it is an important piece of airline history.

Foreword by Reeve Lindbergh
