Quote:
"From 1923 to 1934 [Donna Conway King] worked for the Ontario Motion Picture Bureau, a provincial agency with a mandate to produce educational films for Ontario farmers. Beginning as a stenographer, she worked her way through producer/director's assistant and editor, to become a director herself. Through the vicissitudes of the shifting film industry, she ended her career as a writer in the publicity department, and left the paid labour force when she married."
