In early November 1968, The Pantagraph profiled Susan Emrath, a recent Illinois State University graduate working as a systems engineer for IBM. Emrath, 22 years old at the time, was the youngest in IBM’s eight-member account/marketing team providing technical support to State Farm Insurance.
Emrath is seen here at a State Farm office with an IBM System/360 mainframe computer.
