Betty Hickok

The Washington Post reports that Betty Hickok has died at age 91.  I had not heard of Betty before this report but she was a “onetime home economist who served in the Women’s Army Corps during World War II and who later worked as a paralegal.”  “Later” was in 1977, when (according to my calculations she was 59) ” she enrolled in the paralegal program at George Washington University law school. After completing the program, she worked at Protection for Elderly People, a senior citizens’ group in the city.” Thus, she was a pioneer of the profession and desires a mention here. Check the obituary for more on what appears to have been a remarkable life.
