Description: Bob Richman tells the remarkable journey of American writer and journalist Ruth Gruber, who will turn 99 years old on September 30th. Gruber, a youthful Jewish woman in the late 1920s, was the youngest person to receive a PhD at the age of 20, a feminist before feminism. While at school in Berlin she witnessed the rise of Nazism and began documenting her observations. Eschewing tradition and rejecting the gender standards of her generation, she became a full-time journalist at the age of 24, traveling to the Soviet Arctic in 1935 as the first reporter in the region and beginning an illustrious career with the New York Herald Tribune.
