“Before completing my college education,” Anita Holmes relates, “I held all sorts of jobs––sales clerk, department store gift wrapper, keypunch operator (boy that was fun!), secretary, and photo technician, to name a few. Possibly my most unusual job was working as a clerk-typist/receptionist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. Our office was smack dab in the middle of the Nike Zeus testing range. Periodically a missile roared off into the sky, having been launched from a silo just a mile from our field office. The sound was deafening. I used to get a kick out of driving VIPs out on the range to look down the shaft at the menacing missile below.”

After receiving a B.A. from Cal State L.A., Anita’s professional career in publishing 
took off, and she has been involved in editorial and photographic work ever since. The years have been about equally divided between working as an independent contractor and holding 
staff positions.
