President Frye addresses War Effort, 1942
As the Constellation is being developed and produced, Jack Frye writes an editorial to TWA employees and board members about the job ahead during the war effort. His leadership shines here with encouragement and motivation for the company to continue doing what they do best. Along those lines he calls for the workforce to be dedicated to the war effort, willing to adjust to whatever circumstances helping the company to continue to grow with confidence given the great sacrifices at hand. It must have been really nice to hear from the boss that your job is secure during a nationally focused effort in defeating the enemy.
One of the new changes that came about through some creative ways to serving customers with so many TWA men off to the war was the training of women employees as passenger agents, the first time ever for the company.
