Transportation Pioneers: Ruth Carol Taylor

Brad Flamm shares the recent AASHTO Facebook post about the first African American flight attendant in the US, Ruth Carol Taylor.

“I have fond memories of the tiny two-gates Tompkins County airport — my wife-to-be flew into it several times when I was a grad student there in the early 90s — and now I have a second reason to think fondly of it!”

There’s more on Ruth Carol Taylor’s story here.
