    I was privileged to meet Rear Admiral Grace Hopper when she gave a lecture to our graduate computer class at Aurora College in Aurora, Illinois. She brought that moth, preserved in a block of acrylic plastic, a modern resin, which I was able to hold. She was an awesome lady. I also am  a Hoosier, having been born in Valparaiso and later becoming a graduate from Valparaiso University. Regards, James Tomelljmtomell@yahoo.com
