Dear Phillip,
You said:

"Something that I've been curious about for some time is how the field of
histotechnology has changed. Specifically, what job skills were required
when someone first took a histotech job, and what are required now? Are
there skills that were essential at one time, but are now trivial?"

	 I feel sure some of the older techs, like myself, were VERY glad
to give up knife sharpening and stropping.  As far as I'm concerned that
particular "art" can remain lost:-)  I really think we ought to give an
award to the company that first invented disposable blades.
