Tell me about the early days of using passwords to verify information on computers or over the telephone:
1. When we're people first expected to do so?
2. Did it seem weird to you at the time?
3. Was there anything analogous to the password concept at the time?
4. (Most important to me) How was the concept introduced to the public?

Were you around when passwords were first introduced to the general public? Did it seem "high tech"? Did it feel like "Open Sesame"
N.B. To a lesser extent I am also interested in PIN (personal identification numbers) especially as it relates to later password adoption.
