CLINTON, Mich. -- A 94-year-old woman has shared her memories of her career as a stenographer with the FBI.
The Detroit News reports that Jean Fisher was joined in her Clinton Township home by family members, the special agent in charge of the FBI's Detroit office, David Gelios, and some of his staff.
Fisher still has the telegram the FBI sent her in 1941, offering her a job as a stenographer. She took the position in Washington, D.C., where she earned about $1,400 annually.
She says she remembers working long hours and filling in as a secretary for J. Edgar Hoover, the bureau's first director.
She later transferred to the Detroit office and resigned in 1946 after having her third child.
Gelios gave Fisher a coffee mug, baseball cap and T-shirt with the FBI's logo.
