One of the few books of office etiquette aimed at the boss. Not surprisingly, my copy shows few signs of ever being read! The author was Gladys Torson, a former secretary. "How to Be a Hero to Your Secretary" (1941)
Office… just subtract the smile, the good looking suit, the clutter-free desk, the secretary, the steno pool and the bright and sunny office and you’ve got me today… this may be ripe for an embellishment.
