I got into Histology while I was in the Navy. I was out of MLT school by about three maybe four months, when my wife who was also active duty finally got transferred to the same base as I. There were two openings for her, Blood Bank and Histology. The Navy did not want to put a Med Tech in lowly Histology and we did not want her working for the Officer in charge of Blood Bank. She had previously work for him at another base where his management style got him removed from the lab. 

So I gave up my position in Hematology and went to Histology, were I met the biggest group of clowns ever. That was 1981. Certified 1985.  Took several years off and went into sales. Came back to Histology in 2004 and found that my skills were still there and more important the love for Histology.

Perhaps what each of us ought to do is write a quick line naming the one
person that got you involved in histology and how they did that.  I'd be
willing to gather them and pass them on to NSH so they could post it at
the Seattle meeting.  If you'd like to do this, send the email to
nmhisto <@t> comcast.net and I'll collect.  Just an idea...
