Busiest Sears Department: This "high tech" department consisted of 150 stenographers, dictaphone operators, multigraph operators and typists, and as such, was a kind of showroom. ERB over job was to oversee all of this and was also in control of stereoview development and distribution - magic lantern projection - catalog engraving, photos, publishing, distribution, mail order, etc.
"If Sears, Roebuck & Co. records go back far enough, I'll bet they show I was a good departmental manager for them." ~ ERB
