ProxCard II ID Badge

This ProxCard II ID badge belonged to Beth Leaman during her employment as a systems analyst at William M. Mercer-Meidinger Incorporated from 1990 until 1992. Beth Leaman worked most of her career as a computer business analyst and manager in the insurance and benefits industry focusing on employee communication and benefit selection transactions. As a manager she supervised numerous people, translating the needs of her clients to the technical skills of her employees. The ProxCard II ID is a combination ID badge and control card. By waving the badge at "readers" located at different points throughout the building, the badge controls the front door, elevator doors, doors to building wings, and access to certain rooms.
