This interview is one of a series conducted with former employees of the Huntington Owens-Illinois, Inc. glass bottle factory. This interview is beset by technical problems: the first half of the cassette tape upon which the interview was initially recorded was found to be blank upon being submitted for the transcription process. The interview thus begins in the middle of Mr. Stephens' description of his jobs at Owens (running a partition machine in the packaging department and a sandblaster in the mold repair shop). Most of the rest of the interview consists of Mr. Stephens' discussion of the work which the mold repair shop did at Owens, and the way in which this work changed through the years.
Interview is included in the Marshall University Oral History Collection. The index number is OH64-524.
