What fascinating story!
Nicely done! Pretty amazing that she was able to defend her thesis at the age of 102.
Should I make it even remotely close to 102, I would be thrilled to be able to perform half as well as she!
I'd be thrilled just to make it to 102 and be healthy enough to attempt something like that.
Hehehe, you're absolutely right.
Fantastic and rather moving story. But brilliant to see some form of belated justice and vindication.
Thanks for posting this.
And yes, what a testament to her strength, resilience and sheer character (not to mention academic prowess; the thirties was not an era where bright academic women found a welcoming home in the natural sciences) that she is in a position to defend her thesis at the age of 102. Brilliant. Sheer class. Great story.
Heck, I'm 27 and felt relieved to make it out of my defense alive . A little over a month later, I still have dreams that I showed up and forgot to bring my computer, or that I stood up and couldn't remember anything about what was going on.
It was terrible that she was made to wait so long, but amazing that she was able to do it, and I can't begin to congratulate Dr. Rapoport enough.
A true "life's work!"
