Helen Vogue: Receptionist & Columnist
Women at Hewlett-Packard Company in the 1940s worked in all sorts of positions, from administration to production, and found outlets for their talents within the company culture as well as in executing their formal duties. For example, receptionist and switchboard operator Helen Culver was also a writer and editor for Watt’s Current during the war years. Known for making her own clothes, she eventually became the newsletter’s fashion columnist.
