Title: Daniele Desmoulins Perez-Venero Papers, 1960-1991
Extent: 2.0 Boxes
This collection contains Pan Am materials generously donated by former Pan American World Airways stewardess, Daniele Desmoulins Perez-Venero, who worked for the company in the 1960s. She arrived at the United States in 1964 where she worked as a secretary for Cultural Department of the French embassy before applying to work for Pan Am. Her charisma and knowledge of multiple languages lead to her being hired on the spot, which was against company procedures at the time, and she was granted her first choice in flying the New York-Paris-Monrovia route as her training flight. She later received a permanent placement in San Francisco, flying on a Boeing 707 on the San Francisco to Guatemala and Panama routes. As her career progressed, she was granted the opportunity to fly all over the world, including exotic locations such as Japan, Thailand, Guam, England, Australia, and Tahiti. Her career ended with a brief position as a purser before she got married and quit her job as a stewardess. Materials in the collection include ephemera, clippings, photographs, and clothing collected during her time of employment.
A more detailed biography on her work with Pan Am can be read here in this post.
