Stowed Away

On this day in 1952, British officials refused 18 year old Patricia Kaskel permission to disembark from the R.M.S. Queen Mary when the ship arrived in Southampton. Miss Kaskel of Hollywood, California, had stowed away when the ship departed New York and was discovered before docking in England. She returned to the United States a paying passenger after her parents cabled her the fare.
