(Ah!  Brains and beauty!  Back in the day she was called a Bombshell, but her advances in communication technology led to the developments of Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth technologies.  Of course, the good ol’ boys in the military – during WWII – dismissed her idea of “frequency hopping”, but they did finally utilize it sometime in the 1960s.  She wasn’t formally acknowledged for her contributions until 1997, but by then she was an 82 year old recluse.  Thankfully, we’re getting better about acknowledging all forms of genius, regardless of sex, race and creed.  For those “good ol’ boys” . . .
