The Passing of a Special Professor

I am sad to learn about the passing of one of my rescuers on the Atlantic ocean, July 26, 1956. As I struggled to enter a small window at the top of the French liner, Ile de France, Leonor McAlpine was there helping Andrea Doria shipwreck survivors.

I discovered her identity years later at Wayne State University. Profesora MccAlpine was my Spanish instructor. As I recounted my frightful story, she watched and listened intently; I thought she was impressed with my Spanish speaking abilities. Instead, when I had finished, Profesora McAlpine remarked, “I was one of the people who was pulling survivors into that little window on the Ile!”

I don’t know which one of us was more shocked. The proverbial “6° of separation” became 2° when I learned that she had taught at my high school some years earlier, and that she was living less than 2 miles from my home.

This encounter taught me that we are all interconnected and all in need of one another.

Gracias, Profesora McAlpine!
