Trinity-Byrnes welcomes a speaker for all history buffs
Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate school students were in for a special treat when Mary Ellen Donovan Fuller spoke to the student body about her father, James B. Donovan. Donovan was a New York lawyer who engaged in many of the 20th century’s most intense historical events.
Fuller shared with the student body how she personally met Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. She told the students about the planning of the movie, “Bridge of Spies”, which depicts one of her father’s exploits. Spielberg calls Donovan his hero.
Jim Donovan defended the Russian spy – Col. Rudolf Abel. He also made the exchange in Berlin on a bridge and traded him for America’s U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers. He had been captured when his plane was shot down over Russia.
