This interview is one of a series conducted with former employees of the Huntington Owens-Illinois, Inc. glass bottle factory. This is a short but very interesting interview. Topics of discussion include the differing treatment of men and women at Owens by management and Shepherd's friendship with Opal Mann, the woman who successfully sued Owens-Illinois for sexual discrimination in the 1960's. Mrs. Shepherd also describes socialization inside and outside of the plant, her involvement in various labor strikes at Owens, and changes in the machinery which she observed during her career at the factory.
Interview is included in the Marshall University Oral History Collection. The index number is OH64-518.
