And she completed a century!

Thank you for bringing this to our notice. The Lehmers were a great family.
They not only excelled in maths but had a flair for music also, like so many other math'cians.

I quote from the URL I am giving below which is encouraging and uplifting
news to me as that was one of my aspirations too, but never had the chance.
But I will add that the Lord was generous with me in other ways.

" She never regretted her lack of a PhD writing in the article "On the advantages of not having a PhD" that first of all these have lower expectations. If one happens to discover something new, one's peers are pleasantly surprised, and generous in their praise. This is good for the morale...."
