How Long Can We Live? …We traveled a long way to meet a lovely lady, so funny and wise, and 105 years old. …She loves to read. An Art History major at Bryn Mawr, class of 1934, she gave me a tip on The Madonnas of Leningrad. We gifted her with Chernow’s Hamilton and McCullough’s The Greater Journey. …Curiously, our 105 year old friend was raised in Johnstown, PA. Her mother was a resident, 4 years old, at the time of the flood.
