Alum Mentioned as one of the “Unsung Women of Technology”

Mildred SPIEWAK Dresselhaus, Jan. ’48, was listed in Computer World Online as one of thirteen women who have made major contributions in the fields of science and technology. The article was written in honor of Ada Lovelace Day (October 13) and was sent to us by Andrea Elberger ’69, who writes ” This would be a great encouragement to the current female students at HCHS, and a great source of excitement for many alumni who remember when HCHS was an all-female institution. Most importantly, if you point to slide #4 (out of 15), you will pinpoint the only woman for whom her pre-college education was even mentioned. And why did this one woman have her high school education mentioned – because she went to Hunter College High School.” See the article HERE.
