Maria Gulovich ’47 was among more than 6,000 service men and women and 61 civilians who arrived in New York from Le Havre aboard a former German liner renamed George Washington.  A native of Slovakia, she attended Vassar under a scholarship from the Institute of International Education.

Disembarking, she declined to comment on reports that as a member of the Slovak underground she had helped British and American soldiers cross into Russian-held territory. “Her only comment was that she had been with the United States Office of Strategic Services.”     The New York Times
