Meet a remarkable alumna who lived to be almost 104

"She's lived through 18 presidents, five wars, and the invention of airplanes, antiobiotics, automobiles, computers, motion pictures, nuclear power and television," wrote Wisconsin State Journal feature writer Sunny Schubert, in a 1987 article about Emma Glenz, who'd recently celebrated or 102nd birthday.

Born in Madison in 1883, Emma Louise Glenz graduated from Madison [Central] High School in 1902. I've posted her obituary and copies of several newspaper articles about this remarkable woman, who died in 1987, a week short of her 104th birthday, in the pre-1990 obituary archives.
