News and Events

Young “stews” like Carole Mallory (above) and Lorraine Veve Roy sought freedom and even husbands in the sky —but often faced sexual harassment and mandatory weighins instead.

Last month, ABC premiered its new show, “Pan Am,” a 1960s period drama chronicling a coterie of Pan Am stewardesses and pilots in a campy spy plot that, while admittedly cheesy, examines the sexism and struggles of young women of the era. While critics have responded to the show with a resounding “Meh,” the show has struck a chord with employees from the airline’s golden age.
Like many women on the show, being a stewardess offered a chance to see exotic locales or just escape the routine of their everyday lives.
Carole Mallory was engaged to be married to a man she remembers as “all-American.” At the time, she was teaching at a high school, where she wasn’t much older than the students. The illness of Mallory’s father also weighed heavily on her.
“I felt stifled,” she says. “I wanted to get away.”
These things, plus a desire to travel, led Mallory to cut loose and join the league of glamorous jet-setters known as Pan Am stewardesses.

An event was held at 82nd and Broadway Barnes and Noble in NYC at which author Carole Mallory was interviewed by author Sandy Harmon about LOVING MAILER and its relationship to Mailer's writing.
