how Americans were moving around the country.
(includes an image of a punch card).
I think IBM was nick named "I've been moved" for the way
they moved people around. Likewise Proctor & Gamble
was "Pack and Go".
I think a lot of large corporations and govt agencies
moved people around often in those days. My friend
who worked for US Steel was moved around a lot. He
was grateful he wasn't sent to an ore mine in
South America as some guys were.
I knew a young person who moved to our area due to
her father's job transfer. She was 17 and didn't
have it easy making new friends. Apparently
older kids don't have easy making friends--coming
into a new high school as a senior is a challenge.
