My Gift Was Teaching Others

In the 1960s, we were only beginning to harness the power of the computer
by Mary Martin C.

I went to work at Martin Marietta on June 6, 1961. My work, for the most part, was good. I had to learn how to defend myself. I knew my job and did it well, even if some of the supervisors might have taken credit for a job well done. When I was in accounts payable, I was the clerk selected to help out our department on the computer and to teach the remaining clerks how to do their jobs on the computer. I had the responsibility to teach all new clerks for the remainder of my years at the company.
