Lorene Rogers

From the Austin American Statesman:
"As president of the University of Texas, she was the first woman to lead a major public university in the United States. Moreover, she studied biochemistry at a time when few women worked in science."

We mark the sad passing of such a remarkable woman: "If she had been born 25 years later, she might have, as a woman scientist, achieved more national distinction. She came along at a time when women were having a difficult time in science."
