How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?: 
My Duke English degree was the foundation for my career in library science and then indexing. I indexed many academic subjects. Many of them in literary criticism. I was better able to both sell myself to publishers and authors and feel comfortable in this area.
