In 1950 Elizabeth Barenthaler worked for Corning Glass Works, doing shift work. When that didn't work out, she was hired as a driver for the Museum (Glass Center) when it first opened. She was one of a handful of drivers that would travel to cities throughout New York picking up people and bringing them to the Museum. When not driving she did a variety of jobs to pass the time, one of which was working in the library for Catherine D. Mack, translating German by hand.
