Biography

Photograph of Miriam Luby Wolfe

Miriam Luby Wolfe (1968-1988) was among the 270 victims of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988. She was returning home from a semester in London during which she had studied dance, dramatic literature, acting, voice, and art history, in addition to completing an internship at London's Kingshead Theatre. Miriam was survived by her mother, Rosemary Mild; her stepfather, Lawrence Mild; her father, James Wolfe; and her stepmother, Rosemary Wolfe. Three scholarships have been established in Miriam's honor.

Her mother recalls that Miriam's "exuberance was all encompassing: she didn't walk, she bounced, her luxuriant curls bobbing, intense blue eyes sparkling."
