The inspectors job, under the quality control department, was to ensure quality products entered their departments, and to maintain that quality when products left their work space before moving on to other departments. In 1946, 11 women who formerly employed as inspectors in the forge plant, chose to remain in employment at CF&I. All but three continued to work as inspectors, but were transferred to other departments to meet the need of providing jobs to returning male veterans. Ada Sullivan, Agnes Fitzpatrick, and Vivian Aileen Henley are interviewed about their job as an inspector by a female newspaper reporter.
