Résumé : Paladwr Press is privileged to be able to republish the Diary of Betty Stettinius Trippe--as it was so named when it was published privately fourteen years ago. It is a revealing & 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 & his wife, companion & confidante. It is a charming account, involving contact with presidents & prime ministers, countless industry leaders, even an emperor & the Pope. Above all, it is an important piece of airline history.
