"I was the CO's secretary starting about 1954 or so working for Col McCrary and his successors for about 14 years until I left when my son was born.
"I made many friends there when I was employed including Lillian (Ladyn) Ford and Dorothy (McManus) Kandel who are now deceased. Many, many of the name listed are known to me. I am still in touch with a couple of my co-workers and friends, with long histories at APC, and whom I do not see listed in your Roster. You may know that a number of us stayed connected as members of the APC Alumni which was still active until perhaps five years back. Unfortunately, I recently threw out my Alumni File.
"I started out in the Information Office as a clerk-typist. One of my tasks was to type 'In Focus,' I was reassigned as the secretary to Colonel McCrary. It happened that he was looking for a secretary and my boss (Lt. Col. Schuyler) just happened to ride in a car pool with him and recommended me to him. I was completely surprised, very fortunate and loved the job.
"My good friend Lee Fontana was one of the lucky ones who stayed on for a while as one of the 'caretakers' while everything was being shut down. I was so disappointed that I was not able to come back to APC because it closed. Some of my friends went to Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania. I returned to Civil Service after about 8 years and went to work for IRS in NYC based on a recommendation from one of the APCers who was working there."
"I do have a file around somewhere containing pictures of various events and copies of "In Focus." I would be happy to direct my friends to your site and share my "memorabilia" with you as well if you would be interested."
