Temple Index Bureau Staff, 1936

By: Ardis E. Parshall - June 19, 2012

J. Stapley posted a fun item from 1941, describing a new and very complex system of clearing names for temple work to be implemented in 1942.

As my “comment” on that post, here’s a picture of the women (I’m pretty sure they and everybody else would have referred to them as “girls” in an office setting in that era) who were busy filing cards in the Temple Index Bureau in 1936, only a few years before J.’s system went into effect. If it took this many “girls” to make the system work then, imagine what all that “censoring” and filing and refiling (to replace carbon copies with original copies after the work was done) would have added!
