Learning to be an O&M specialist in the Class of 1969

As part of the AER Orientation and Mobility (O&M) Division's celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the establishment of university O&M programs, I was asked to make a videotape explaining my exeriences becoming an O&M specialist 40 years ago. At first it felt strange to consider myself as historic (gads!) but then I realized it really WAS different then -- how we dressed, having to write our own textbooks, being a woman entering a Man's World, etc. So links to these videos are below -- enjoy!
