As the 1960's and 1970's progressed, my parents and I added to my collection of the yellow hard-cover Nancy Drew books. We stopped at number 48, The Crooked Banister. Then my time was occupied with high school and college activities. I graduated in 1981 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and got my first professional job as a researcher. I continued my career in business and market research and data analysis. Boy, I was a long way from those grade school days and my summer days spent reading Nancy Drew mystery stories. Then again, maybe Nancy influenced me in some way - after all, research means "to carry out investigations into a subject".
