September 21

On this day 1981, Susan Day O'Conner became the first woman of the United States Supreme Court.

Born this day in 1884, Doctor Ethel Percy Andrus, an educator and founder of  NRTA  and AARP.  Dr. Andrus began her career as a teacher, and she also was the first woman to serve as a  high school principal. In 1947 Dr. Andrus realized retired teachers were living on a very small wages and without health care. She founded the National Retired Teachers Association.  To solve the problem of one group she solved the problem of millions of retirees by creating the American Association of Retired Persons and the monthly magazine which is still being published today.
