Amusing, inspiring and touching. 50 YEARS OF RESUMES AND PASSPORT STAMPS shares Elizabeth Lydia Palmer's journey through life. Go to work with her as her career in data processing follows the development of computers-from mechanical accounting machines and punched card systems to mini-computers, mainframes, and databases. Through hirings and firings, Elizabeth shares the accolades she received from bosses and the criticisms when she was the subject of a case study in how to deal with an incompetent employee. Teaching computer software classes, attending volleyball clinics and joining family activities put some unusual, out-of-the-ordinary trips on Elizabeth's calendar. Travel with her as she climbs Mt. Fuji to watch the sunrise, braves the border guards in iron-curtained Czechoslovakia, files past Pope John Paul I's body as he lies in state in St. Peter's Basilica and then then watches for white smoke announcing a new pope, smokes a peace pipe in Colorado and a water pipe in Istanbul, scalps tickets at the Montreal Olympics, and skiis the Women's Olympic Downhill Run in Innsbruck. Elizabeth's 50 YEARS OF RESUMES AND PASSPORT STAMPS offers anecdotes of marrying, raising four children in Illinois, Texas, Ottawa, and California, surviving cancer, divorcing after thirty years, dating after age fifty and finally filing away her resumes as she retires.
