Lowell briefly worked at S.D. Warren in her youth around the time she graduated high school in 1950. She worked in the finishing department with the hundreds of other women who inspected and counted reams of paper by hand. In addition to describing her experience, she spoke movingly about her aunt, Mae Bachelor (both were interviewed together), who was considered a superstar in their workroom.
