Oral History Information
Mary Miller interviewed for a factory job with the founder of Crown International, Clarence Moore. Mary recalled that day in 1966 as the interview was long, but it gave her a chance to understand the company and its values. She left for a year but returned in 1968 and stayed until her retirement in 2010. She began on the assembly line and worked her way up to supervisor and later into management. She was active in the culture at Crown, including meeting in small groups to encourage each other in times of need, playing on the bowling team, and participating in the employee carry-ins. Mary was “the” Crown computer before the implementation of the official computer system. She knew where everything was located and its serial number. She was a special addition to the Crown team and very much enjoyed her time there.
