As the nation came together to mourn, support each other and rebuild in the aftermath of 9/11, local Marblehead resident Virginia Buckingham, the head of Boston’s Logan International Airport at the time, was publicly singled out for blame and forced to resign. She was also sued for wrongful death by the family of a 9/11 victim who held her personally responsible for the terrorist attack.
A rising political star at age 35, Buckingham had served as chief of staff to two consecutive Massachusetts governors before becoming the first woman to head the state’s Port Authority. The unique memoir “On My Watch” shares her struggles to rebuild her life and come to terms with being blamed for an unimaginable tragedy that occurred on her watch.
