Accession Number: 2006.13.38

Scope & Content: Rita Mudd came to work at the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) in 1963 and worked as a braille stereograph operator, keying braille text onto metal embossing plates until she left in 1968. In 1971, she resumed working for APH, by which time computerized braille production had been introduced, and she describes the use of IBM card readers that would automatically run the stereographs and of the later-introduced PEDs (Plate Embossing Devices), which she operated, and TEDs (Text Embossing Devices). She retired from APH with 41 years of service in 2007.
