FIRST STEWARDESS ON THIS DAY IN 1930


Ellen Church (September 22, 1904 – August 22, 1965)

Church, a registered nurse and aspiring pilot, became the world’s first
stewardess to fly when she embarked on a Boeing 80A for a 20-hour
flight from Oakland/San Francisco to Chicago with 13 stops and 14 
passengers. According to one source, the pilot was another aviation
pioneer, Elrey Borge Jeppesen (below).
