Keeping in Touch
A former stenographer shares memories of her days in the early 1960s at the FBI, which began in the now historic San Diego Trust and Savings Bank Building. Marjorie McClintock was a 17-year-old graduate of an all-girls parochial high school when she met the 20-year veteran, Jane Esther Campbell, who was secretary to the Special Agent in Charge. It wasn't long before Marjorie and Jane found themselves on morning and afternoon breaks together, taken later than the others. Jane became her confidant, always interested in her affairs of the heart and otherwise. When Marjorie transferred to Washington, D.C. in 1965, she began writing to many of her FBI friends. While younger friends eventually dwindle to Christmastime correspondents, Jane continued to write. For what has now been 40 years, these two women have shared their lives-Jane writing about her life of gardening, entertaining and traveling after retirement. She also kept Marjorie posted on news of FBI friends. Her letters are full of praise, encouraging words and love for a woman who seemed to be forever struggling through life.
