Susan Lee Campbell
Dr. Susan Lee Campbell "…wasn't going to Korea…" according to her mother, Joan Dunn, interviewed by the Washington Post, but "…took a connecting flight because it was quicker and cheaper."
The highly accomplished Dr. Campbell was a recipient of a Henry Luce Scholarship, "…given to those students who possess outstanding leadership potential in their professions and who wish to continue their studies and research in Asia".
On September 1, 1983, the 28-year-old Dr. Campbell had just finished a summer visiting with relatives in Shrewsbury, MA., and was on her way to finish studies in veterinary medicine at Tung Hai University in Taiwan.
She was director of the Sambar Deer research Center there. She also held an associate university professorship.
Originally from Worcester, Massachusetts, she graduated summa cum laude from Wellesley College in 1977.
She then headed to Ohio State University for a master's degree, in veterinary medicine, then a Ph.D. with honors.
Dr. Campbell was planning to return to Worcester to practice.
