Awesome Story: 102-Year-Old Women Sets Record for Oldest Ever Doctoral Recipient
This story is a great one: 102-year-old Ingeborg Rapoport has become the oldest ever recipient of a PhD after an old Nazi injustice is righted. Of course, the reason behind the story is very unfortunate to say the least, but I love the story's ending. This is really awesome. (Technically, she will be given the doctorate in a ceremony on 9 June. She has already successfully defended it.) (Tip of the cap to A Mighty Girl.) Update (6/10/15): Ingeborg Rapoport now officially has her doctorate.
