Flighty secretary

Here’s a photograph from the June 17 1929 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a pilot and his secretary.

Clarence Chamberlin (1893-1976) was the second pilot to fly across the Atlantic Ocean (Charles Lindbergh was the first) and the first to fly with a passenger, which he accomplished in 1927. By the time of this photograph, Chamberlin was manufacturing and selling eight-seater airplanes; presumably, he and his secretary are being photographed in one of them.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the name of Chamberlin’s secretary. I did find a photograph of the two of them that appears to be the original of the one displayed above before being reversed and cropped. But that photo didn’t provide her name either.
