    I really appreciate this diary.  Barbara McClintock is one of my hero's.  As someone posted previously, she "figured out the value of books," before the invention of the printing press.  I was not able to locate any specifics quickly for this comment, but I was under the impression that she suffered from lack of academic recognition, at least in her early career.

    Another of my hero's is Alice Hamilton, the mother of industrial health.  She was the first woman professor at Harvard and retired as an "emeritus assistant professor." WTF!  I would suggest her as a deserving candidate for a future "Women in Science" diary

    The plural of anecdote is NOT data
