Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The death of Justice Ginsburg  is a profound loss for the country.  She was brilliant, humane, courageous, remarkable. 

The photograph, below, was taken in 1972, the year she joined the faculty at Columbia Law School, with tenure.  At the time, she was 38 years old, and was the first woman to be hired by the school as a full professor.
