In the early 1960’s and really for years beyond, the newspaper business was not exactly an upwardly mobile profession for women. The same could be said for broadcast journalism when I started several years later. Just about the best a woman could do was to be a helping hand to the old timers, give them their paychecks or make sure they had enough booze and cigarettes. Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration but not by much.
