A most-perfect mathematician (2)

A few days after her 100th birthday, Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw travelled the 200 miles to Oxford, where her alma mater, Somerville College, had arranged a lunch party in her honour. Dame Kathleen, spry,lively & engaged gave a good-humoured speech of thanks, drawing on her memories of a long life. A most remarkable woman.
