An American living in Leicester, UK. Working on a PhD. in English Studies. This blog is a small oasis for me outside of academia, where I can post pretty things and brilliant words and memories of things past.
Hedy Lamarr, 1930’s.
(Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-American actress and mathematician, celebrated for her great beauty. Mathematically brilliant, Lamarr also co-invented—with composer George Antheil—an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.)
