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.
To her surprise, Hopkins called and offered her the job.
