Happy Birthday, Annie!

Penny commented that today is Annie Jump Cannon’s birthday. I have long known of her as a famous astronomer but I did not know that she became deaf as an adult. Thanks, Penny, for providing the link to Disability Studies at Temple U. and the bit about Annie Jump Cannon for her birthday today. Do visit the DS-TU page; there is a marvelous photo of Cannon and a great short little bio. Her biography at 4000 Years of Women in Science is here. Also see this site at Wellesley. Great photos there, too, and a link to more info.
