Emma M. Nutt…

Dear Reader,

In days like this when my days run together and nothing new to write about in my daily life comes about I spend the day looking for interesting bits of information that are not exactly part of the Google Doodle of the day.

Today for instance we celebrate the very first female phone operator. Her name was Emma.  In this day and age when phone operators are seldom used thanks in part by Phone books and after that the Internet, it might be lost on the young generation that way back in 1878 a Telephone Dispatch Company known as Edwin and Holmes hired the very first female operator, a huge thing back then as women were not exactly the popular choice for jobs.

What had led to her getting hired was a simple case of having good manners and a soothing voice. Soon there after women became popular in this field. Amazing to think it took one woman’s voice and her amazing patience to jump start it.

So today her amazing leap for all women world wide has not gone unnoticed by yours truly.  Sure we don’t see these kind of ground breaking things happen much these days, but it is the small steps of the past that linger in the present even if the next time you call 411 you get a machine, know that it all started with a human. I hope we can go back to that someday.

Until my next post. Here is hoping for gems in this month. I vote discoveries even in their smallest measures.
