Transcribing: A Tempestuous Tension!

For Jess

Originally, Jess was going to utilize OCR to transcribe the typewritten material.  Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out that way!  So she had to go at it “old school.”  Yep!  She typed everything out by hand!  THATS DEDICATION! 

Towards the end of the process, when my time was more flexible, I assisted her with transcribing one of the scrapbooks.  I have to say, I have a greater appreciation for how hard she had to work to accomplish this, along with carrying a full course load.  No easy task!

One of the great challenges was to transcribe almost indecipherable type!  The process was long, tedious, and made you sleepy.  But she pulled it off.  My compliments to her dedication.
