Nice article. I don't remember if Mrs. Johnson appeared in the Women in Engineering series that ran a while ago on CR4. She brings back memories of my own high-school geometry and advanced algebra teacher, Pearl Barrick, whose love of math inspired many.

Yep, there were probably many women worthy of attention, but it's the way life is. Need to be at the right place, at the right time, and be seen and recognized by the right people.
