Irma Tyus-Mitchell, Publisher of New York’s Magazine, recalls that day after New York’ City’s July 1977 Black-out when she ignored warnings not to arrive at her first New York City secretarial assignment.  Long before publishing her 1992-93 TV Events Manhattan Guide, her unprecedented career legacy thrived obligingly.
       Irma''s Johnson & Johnson's J&J’s (Secretarial Training Certificate landed her first secretarial position at Livingston College, NJ. . She attended New York’s School of Technology; play-writing workshops at the New York’s Negro Ensemble Company and various continuing education courses. Irma’s secretarial aspirations, formulated as a 17 year-old, Neighborhood Youth Corps' clerical worker, reporting to New Jersey’s first female Mayor Patricia Sheehan, of New Brunswick, NJ (her hometown). At 19, Irma, left her full-time, keypunch operator job, in Summit, NJ, the same night after leaving her coveted, part-time, female, floor-modeling job, at Bambergers’ in Plainfield, NJ, (before this national chain store became Macy’s-Bambergers). She was the non-aspiring model and, single mother, promoted from her Bambergers’ part-time cashier job. She delayed accepting Bamberger’s chain’s first Black floor model, for two weeks, until she read The Model Trap.  
        At age 20, at J&J the world's leading health care manufacturer who  employed her six months prior, after Roy Epps, an Urban League of New Jersey President scheduled her placement interview financially awarded and  and featured Irma in J&J'S   Corporations' Bulletin Magazine.  During their fifth year after employing Blacks in their office, the magazine Irma as J&J first offie clerical employee to revised and upgrade a standard office’s monthly resulting in the Corporation's saving.  Irma's modification of J&J's Specification's Division's procedure, process and material catalogs, resulted in their hiring one less employee, utilizing less paper, and four days less to complete..  
        In January 1975 Irma refused a press card from Carl Offord, Publisher of  his dazzling, Black American Newspaper, in New York.  Unfazed about Irma’s denial that she wasn’t a journalist, but a secretary, writing short-stories and poems, he explained his assumption that he thought she wrote for Innervisions Agency, after extensively asking him several questions during their meeting with Claude Spivey, President of NJ’s Innervisions’ and her recently met cousin, Donald Tyus, also of Innervisions.  Before that meeting, Spivey asked Irma to question Carl, because he himself could not respond to her inquiries,  despite his plans for a New Jersey Black American Newspaper Bureau.   They rode with Irma, in her Firebird’s first drive to New York. Both men urged her to accept the distinguished publisher's  press card, after Carl promised Irma, he’d advised her to study journalism or English, if her first article required much editing. Soon Irma’s Morse Donaldson School of Ballet in Newark, NJ, feature was published in the Black American Newspaper. 1975 ended with Irma’s NJ’s Forum Newspaper articles, published by Jonathan Blount, an Essence Magazine’s publisher/founder and her Moments ‘ (Ray, Goodman & Brown) cover story in publisher’s Jimmy Smith’s Happening Magazine.
        Aside from writing plays and more, since 1981 Irma’s freelance articles featured actor Calvin Lockhart’s hosting Dr. Bob La Prince’s National Council of Culture & Arts’ fundraiser, in the Amsterdam News. Thereafterm Graphica, Caribbean News, Daily Challenge, Enlightenment, Carib Life, Gladiator Magazine, Harlem Times Magazine, Black Noir Magazine, Beacon, Harlem News, etc. 
        Carolyn Byrd, Bubbling Brown Sugar’s Broadway’s star helped launched Irma’s publicity career for the humanitarian, Mother Clara Hale’s 1981’s first Hale House Celebrity Fundraiser, at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. Months later, President Ronald Reagan and Alphonse D’Amato cited Mother Hale, A Great American Hero, and recipient of $2MM government funding.
