Fearless Females – Prompts for Women’s History Month – Day 2

Our assignment for March 2nd is:

  • Post a photo of one of your female ancestors.
  • Who is in the photo?
  • When was it taken?
  • Why did you select this photo?

Rather than a single photo, watch and hear for yourself Rear Admiral Dr. “Amazing” Grace Brewster Murray Hopper on the David Letterman Show (on YouTube).

How about some of her Quotations?

How about 60 minutes, part 1?

How about 60 minutes, part 2?

For more photo’s of “Amazing Grace” see what the Navy has online.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say:

There is a ship named after her:

Not knowing about my 7th Cousin, though we lived not to far apart, I do not have a photo that I took of her. But, I have visited her burial sight in Arlington Cemetery. (picture above)

Truly and Amazing person.
