Jim Amash: You were an editor for a while as well as a secretary. Was Marion McDermott an editor before you?It’s not known when the affair started. Together McDermott and St. John made at least two trips to Bermuda. At Ancestry.com a passenger list recorded the arrival of McDermott and St. John at New York City’s LaGuardia Airport on October 1, 1950. Aboard Colonial Airlines’ Flight 101, they had departed Kindley Field, Bermuda. Recorded on the list was McDermott’s address, 26 Ascan Avenue, Forest Hills, New York, and her birthplace, California.
Nadine King: Mary McDermott was an editor while I was there. She and St. John started having an affair. They decided to elope somewhere in the South, but they changed their minds and came back.
