Oral history interview with Judy Green, 2015. Interviewed by Kathleen Legg. Forms part of the UCAR/NCAR Oral History Collection. Judy Green, long time telecommunications assistant at NCAR, shares her unique perspective of NCAR, its people and culture. Green discusses her early career as a telephone operator at Mountain Bell in Cheyenne, Wyoming and how her and her family came to NCAR. Green talks about her experience with the various telephone systems at NCAR over the years, including the old “cord board”, the short lived Harris system, the Rolm system and Voice Over IP (VoIP). Green reminisces about the relationships between the telephone operators and those on the other end of the line and provides fascinating personal anecdotes. Green talks about some key transitional points, like how voice messaging changed the culture of NCAR, and speaks generally about how technological innovation has changed her day-to-day work throughout her 38 years at NCAR.
