Myrtle Eagan was the 3rd CEO of Lumon Industries from 1941 to 1959, and is a descendant of its founder, Kier Eagan. She was the first woman to occupy this position in the company. She is also the namesake of the Myrtle Eagan School for Girls, where Harmony Cobel attended school, as well as the Myrtle Eagan Credit Union.
I think that to be an Eagan, either a true Eagan or anyone working in this Lumon family, what you are is the keeper of an ethos, a compact of values that we have long held as precious, and which I do believe will one day save this world. And that ethos goes all the way back through my blood to where we all started, with Kier. When I was a girl, my father would make me whisper… Vision. Verve. Wit. Cheer. [Humility. Benevolence.] Nimbleness. Probity. Wiles.
