Vol. 2 - August - No. 39Airport Worker: Evelyn Spangler
Evelyn Spangler, eighteen-years-old, was just as proficient at acetylene torch welding as any of the men welders in the Pennsylvania Central shops, according to Johnny Shore, her instructor. Evelyn learned welding rudiments from her father in Christiansburg, Virginia, got more experienced at the vocational school at Manassas, Virginia, and then joined the repair crew at the Washington National Airport. There was no welding job too difficult for her to tackle.
