I knew Mary Margaret very well and she did indeed work for CNAC. We traveled to Calcutta on the same plane and she worked as a food manager (I guess you would call it that) in the Staff House. She was very energetic and certainly very capable. As you know, her husband "Potty" was a CNAC pilot. I have a picture of her if you would like to have it..
or would like to be added to the CNAC e-mail distribution list,
please let the CNAC Web Editor know.
