Portrait of Regina Polk
Before she was killed in a plane crash at the age of 33, she organized women clerical workers at Blue Cross/Blue Shield and the University of Chicago, among other places. Terry Spencer Hesser tells Polk's story in the book, I Am a Teamster. Hesser told Eight Forty-Eight's Ashley Gross that she met Regina Polk only once and briefly, but she could hardly believe her eyes.
