MARTIN A. CONNOLLY, LT, USN
Martin Connolly '53
Date of birth: unknown
Date of death: September 1, 1955
From the 1953 Lucky Bag:
Martin was lost when the C-47 aircraft he was a passenger aboard crashed in Alaska on September 1, 1955; all seven aboard were killed. The wife of one of the passengers — the passenger aboard because he was a contractor to the Air Force — sued the Air Force on the basis that the crash was due entirely to pilot error. The case law has a detailed account of the crash.
Martin is buried in Pennsylvania.
