To have the love of your life once, is wonderful. To have three loves, simultaneously, well that's another Pan Am Story.
Pan American World Airways Captain Wayne Poulsen married Manhattan socialite Gladys Olga “Sandy” Kunau, and purchased undeveloped land in a winter wonderland. His career flew sky high, his marriage flourished, and so did the ski area he helped found, Squaw Valley.
Three loves: Skiing, Flying, Sandy. Maybe not in that order.
Captain Wayne Poulsen joined Pan American World Airways in 1943 and stayed 31 years.
July 24, 1915 marks his birthday, Mr Poulsen passed in 1995.
We thank his family for sharing these personal photos.
