Mary Oursler Pottorff (known as 'Mopsy') was one of the longest lasting, and most active of the staff corrupters of Philip Morris's Corporate Affairs division -- working both in the State company, and also in International. She was married to Domenic DeGaetano, (and probably uses his name also). Within Philip Morris her signing initials were MOP, so she was often refered to in the tobacco documents as "Mopsy" -- but also lightheartedly as "Popsy". A close associate in the same office, and at about the same managerial level, was Kathleen Linehan known as "Buffy".
