They Called Me a “Human Clam” But I Changed Almost Overnight – Strength Magazine – June, 1926

As I passed the President’s office I could not help hearing my name. Instinctively I paused to listen. “That human clam,” he was saying, “can’t represent us. He’s a hard worker, but he seems to have no ability to express himself. I had hoped to make him a branch manager this fall, but he seems to withdraw farther and farther into his shell all the time. I’ve given up hopes of making anything out of him.”
