I hate to appear picky, but I think what you're remembering are what we called "spirit duplicators". Over the years, I used many of them, plus mimeographs.

How about the days before hand-held hair dryers, when you had to sit under a hood that blew out warm air?

And there were just a few professional careers really open to women--such as nurse, teacher, secretary.....

.....and only until they married. Many of the women I went to the university with did not expect to graduate, they were just passing time waiting for their other half to graduate then we're getting married. I remember my first grade teacher, she got married and quit teaching. That was a shame cause she was a great teacher. All my other teachers were unmarried or men.

Before our time teachers were not allowed to marry, from my understanding. Sigh.

Yes, and if you research history of school shootings in the 1800 and early 1900s, many of the few that occurred were men coming to kill their schoolteacher "sweetheart" in the classroom
