— Margaret Polk —

Margaret Polk was a Memphis resident and a graduate of the Hutchison School. While a student at Southwestern in Memphis, she dated Pilot Robert Morgan prior to his deployment overseas. Bob named his B-17F-Memphis Belle, in honor of the girl he left behind. For the rest of her life, she lent her presence and her support as the 'real' Memphis Belle.
