Executive director Crockett retires, worked up from typist

Email

Marilyn Crockett, a slip of a girl fresh out of high school, met Bill Hopkins, then executive director of the Alaska Oil and Gas Association, for a job interview. Marilyn could type very well, was very proficient at shorthand (a now lost art) and the job was for a receptionist/typist.

It was 41 years ago, and at 17 years old, she felt intimidated by Hopkins and was relieved when the interview was done. She thought she blew it.
