Levitt henrietta swan levitt was born on july fourth eighteen. Sixty eight in. Lancaster massachusetts to george and henrietta. She was the first of their seven children growing up. Henrietta 's family was fairly well off her father. George worked as a minister and the congregational church. The downside of georgia's job was at the family. Had to move whenever he changed congregations when henrietta was in her teens. The family moved to cleveland ohio. After graduating from high school in eighteen eighty five henrietta enrolled in a one year college. Preparatory course at oberlin college followed by two years as an undergraduate there at the time henrietta was studying music following her sophomore year at oberlin henrietta and her family moved back east to cambridge massachusetts home of harvard university.

That would eventually change. Its name to radcliffe college for two years. Henrietta studied math and astronomy before graduating in eighteen. Ninety two after graduation. Henrietta took a job as a volunteer research assistant at the harvard. College observatory though. Her parents had to support her financially. During her time there she was able to build up credits towards an advanced degree in astronomy and she found great satisfaction in the work at the observatory. Henrietta was part of a large project attempting to catalog the brightness position and color of all observable stars in the universe which at the time was believed to just consist of the milky way. Henrietta was tasked with analyzing photographs in order to determine the necessary star data. She was asked pay particular attention to any star whose brightness varied over time and to record how long the cycle of bright to dim too bright again took otherwise known as the period of variation at the beginning of eighteen ninety. Six henrietta left harvard to spend some time in europe. She was having issues with both her sight and hearing and her doctors had suggested that a trip abroad might help upon her return to the united states. Two years later. Henrietta moved to wisconsin where her father had just taken a job at a new congregation. Henrietta i managed to find a job for herself as an assistant at the local college in nineteen nine two. After five years in wisconsin henrietta contacted edward pickering the director of the harvard college observatory with their request to have her old lab. Notebook sent to her in wisconsin. She wanted to complete the report on stars. Sheet started so many years before she also asked pickering if you knew of any observatory jobs located in warm weather since it was better for her health. Pickering was unaware of any job openings in the tropics but he was so impressed with henrietta 's previous work offered her a paid fulltime job at the harvard college observatory as a computer computers as they were called at the time or people who did all of the calculations and data analysis by hand this also gave henrietta the opportunity to finish up the work on the star catalogue in nineteen oh eight. Henrietta published her first academic papers summarizing her work on the star catalogue. The paper focused on the existence of an extraordinarily large number of stars with variable brightness located in the magic clothes. Most importantly she noted that the brighter stars have longer periods meaning. It takes longer for them to go from dim too bright to dim again for four years. Henrietta continued the time consuming work of analyzing variable stars. She discovered that there was one type of variable star called a cepheid star that seemed to pulse at a rate directly related to the stars actual brightness since there's a very clear and precise relationship between brightness and distance henrietta realized that one potentially use a cepheid stars variability to calculate the distance from that star to earth. This was a major revelation in nineteen twelve. henrietta published. A paper about her breakthrough. It was extraordinarily well received by the scientific community. And astronomers around the world began working to utilize henrietta discovery. Just a year. Later a european astronomer was able to determine the distance of a number of cepheid stars from earth which laid the groundwork for a method of determining the distance of any sethi these cepheids with known brightness distance ratios became known astronomy as standard candles utilizing henrietta 's work edwin hubble then calibrated how to measure the distance to steffi's located even farther away his astonishment he discovered that many of these cepheids were so far away that they were actually beyond the milky way. These stars were in other galaxies. Meaning that the universe was much bigger and filled with much more than humanity had imagined up to that point in nineteen twenty one having truly made a name for herself in her field. Henrietta was named the head of the stellar. Photon matry department at harvard college observatory. She passed away before she could start her new job.

Now you'll remember a few weeks ago you and Steffi night we agreed we were going to have a film called. We're going to watch this movie. which is one one of the great Jewish movies of all time It's the story of two friends. Rabbi and a priest Ben Stiller Edward Norton who reconnect with an old friend from childhood with. WHO's growing up into this? Great beauty played by Jan Elf men and love triangular hijinks ensue revisiting. This movie Lille Bentzion Shlomo Yoshua o'malley Liebowitz Liebowitz. What did you think it broke my heart? I was so profoundly sad. I arrived at the city shortly before the events depicted in in this year. Movie take place and I. I really couldn't help thinking how it captures a reality. That is completely alien to the way we live today. People call each other on the phone then they have meetings in person if something goes wrong and you want to talk about it in life. You don't tweet about it. You actually go to a friend's apartment and and you sit there and you have all these lovely late night. Confessions no-one intended the upper west side is robust. There are no stores that are shuttered because the Internet There's no kind of you know existential. Fear and dread that seeped into the city after nine eleven it is just a testament to to hope to humanity to connection to the possibility of faith to transform lives. It seems like a document from another century and in a sense it really is at the fact that one of the running gags is how they mocked Elf men because he carries a little cellphone around like that was the moment when cell phones. Were first becoming a thing and I remember getting my first one thinking you know and I I think I told myself it was a financial decision it was cheaper than having a landline. And I I was doing some traveling for my graduate school work and it was GonNa let me keep in touched on the road and even remember the last phone number. I ever learned because once you get cellphone records you know what's the point of it was John Pitt. partner at Williams and Connolly former roommate of mine. I don't know his phone number now. I guess I guess some years later I learned my wife's phone number and then my daughters and that's it and it really was a time where yes. The whole premise of the movie is they all live near each other on the upper west side and therefore can get together to fight out all of these Dramas that their lives are playing out and they have to do it. They have to cry at each other's shoulder and they have to. When when Edward Norton gets upset by the turn things are taking he goes to a bar even the fact that like? He's drunk in the bar crying to the bartender. Looks like such an anachronism such an actress. The person who made this movie. This really is one of the greatest films of the last thirty forty years. The person made this movie. I think thought he was making religious movie inasmuch as it was about these. You know this relationship between the Rabbi and the priest I think what actually we ended up taking from it vis-a-vis vis-a-vis religion twenty years. Later is the fact that for spirit to survive at all. You need precisely that you need to be able to sit at the bar and talk to. The bartender need to sit on the couch with your friend and cry for hours. You need all these things that life post Internet simply makes if not impossible the really really unlikely and really like I felt post human watching this meeting realizing how much was lost in the last years made me deeply depressed and I don't think I'm just being kind out of like you know. Middle aged man hotdogs cost a quarter. It really felt like a teaching. It's terrific movie and it was. It was a terrific movie Middle aged man right. I completely agree with you and but when I talked to my college students or when I talked to my kids about it they they don't disagree they they watch a movie like this and they know exactly exactly what I'm talking about and which is why in fact.

Drop in writing. Not On your official biography or Kapadia that we should know about you. Well I mean there's a lot but one of the most important things if not the most important things is that I'm a mom. I have two kids one in high school now in one in college and I'm a wife and I'm a proud daughter daughter of two parents who had phenomenal impact on me So family to me is hugely important. What is a typical day? Look like for you now now. It's well now when I'm not on book tour normally. Okay it's so much better comparatively like I can get up at seven you know as opposed to five thirty or six. I can work out and take my time doing it. Not being rushed I can put on my yoga pants I and my fleece and very leisurely eat my breakfast. which is usually like fruit and yogurt or something like that with a lot of coffee and then it depends on what my days as about? When I was writing the book? Sit Down and focus on that. I spend time at the School of International Service at American University. where I meant to our students I do some speaking. I do some travel. I'm on the board of Netflix. And I do some other private sector so depends on what the the the deal of the day is but for the most part the great thing is I'm in charge of my own schedule and I'll have to get dressed up except when I'm on book tour you said You can travel. I'm sure you have traveled so much watch but a lot of it has been in your professional life. Where's the last place? You traveled here for fun abroad or anywhere anywhere.

Indonesia I've been to many parts arts of Africa most of western Europe a good bit of South America but I still want to go to Chile. I WANNA go back to Argentina. Yeah I WANNA go back to Brazil. We should do do a little girls chalet you should. It's amazing you talk about family being really important to you. And that's obviously a huge inspiration from the book. The the title of the book is a nod to your parents parenting style. Tell us about your parents. Well I had to really wonderful parents both past unfortunately but my dad. I was born in segregated South Carolina around nineteen twenty. His grandfather. My grandfather had been a slave. He fought in the Union army in South Carolina during the civil war and then after the civil war my great grandfather rather miraculously got a primary education occasion became a teacher and then got his divinity degree Went to college and after college he An after his early professional career. He established a school in New Jersey. called the board in town school and from the late eighteen eighty s until nineteen fifty-five that school educated generations of African Americans both in vocational and technical skills and in college preparatory skills and Albert Einstein and Stein and Mary McLeod but Thune. Eleanor Roosevelt. All came to the school which was really quite extraordinary in that. Legacy of service of education was what my father was raised with but born in this oppression of segregation and Jim Crow. He really was struggling to figure out how he could fulfil his potential during World War. Two he served with the Tuskegee airman and in the segregated Army Air Force and he had the horrible experience of not being able elite in restaurants off of base but seeing German. POW is being served and so he knew that he wanted to become somebody. He was brilliant and after after college he decided in after the war lead the south. Go out to California. He got his PhD in economics at the University of California Berkeley and then he spent his professional fashion career. Working his way up he worked in the Treasury Department. He worked at the World Bank in a senior position. Ultimately he was a governor of the Federal Reserve. And I'll come back to him but I learned from my father just extraordinary perseverance and basically believing in yourself even when society and everybody around around you is telling you that you're not worthy or you can't. My mom came from a totally different background. She was the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica. That came came to Portland Maine of all places in nineteen twelve and my grandparents on her side. Had No education was agenda when was a maid and yet like so many immigrants immigrants. They came with the American dream in saved and worked very hard and sent all five of their kids to college. Two of my uncles became doctors. One a university president won an optometrist optometrist and then along came my mother the baby and she was Valedictorian of her high school class. She was debate champion. She she went on to Radcliffe College now. Part of Harvard and was president of the entire student body graduated magna cum laude and because she almost didn't get go to college because she was denied a scholarship because she was black but eventually because her principal enter debate coach went to bat on her behalf. She azazel receive another source of money. She made the fight to enable college to be affordable to low income Americans. Her life's passion and she. He was known as the mother of the Pell Grant Program because she was instrumental in establishing and sustaining this extraordinary program. That's allowed eighty million Americans to go to college. My mom was it was a bad ass in nineteen fifty when she graduated from high school as an African American woman. In a very white state of Maine She he went on through her career to be a pioneer. And so these two parents who were wonderful but had a horrible marriage which can come back to really taught me to fight and to be strong and to not be dismissed her diminished or discounted by others how his career talked about in your household growing up. I mean I. I had a working mom and a professional mother from the earliest days of my life and so on the one hand. It was an example in an expectation that you can work and have family at the same time. It was rare. Frankly at that time this has been the late sixties early seventies for the mothers of my classmates for for example to be working outside of the home in a professional capacity. So I had her example and I had my father's example of rising up in government and in private it's sector we were expected to excel. We were expected to work hard and do our best. We are also taught that you know we could be whatever we wanted to be. They weren't saying you gotta be this or you got to be that but the fundamental message was whatever you choose to be do your best at it and make it something. That's about somebody other than just yourself when I hear you talk about your parents and them as role models to you and your family I think about it two ways on one hand. I'm like that is incredible. crediple an amazing and they obviously created such a strong legacy in you. Second thing I think of is that's got to be a lot of pressure at times. Did you feel that growing up. Who is funny not really not in the sense of? I was scared that I wasn't going to meet their expectations and they were going to get mad at me. They had a really important saying that. Did they sort of banged into me. And my brother which was do your best and your best will be good enough and what they meant by that was you know. Don't be a slacker. Don't be fast but if you do your best and it's not you do badly that's okay. You are allowed to fail. You just not allowed not to try your best. And so they gave us a sort of confidence in safety net. They'll be behind us. We can take risks. We can do something thing that we may not be good at but just do your best. The message was you know. Don't be lame and that was kind of their version tough love. It doesn't mean that they expected us to always get as observe. Be The best person on the basketball team or whatever the the thing was but were they gave us a hard time was when we sort of cut corners fit in the Rom- of your imagination that you would have the jobs that you ended up having served in the way that you ended up serving the particular job that I had were not in the realm of imagination. Because I didn't know yeah. When I was young I was going to be interested in foreign policy and national security? I didn't know the field well enough to say. This is what I want to but I knew that I was likely to to do something and do it to the best of my abilities and that it would be an ambitious objective.

"AA was focused on child development. When it came to children's books, they worked with parents to help their children's learning and work with publishers to make sure that the books were helping to provide a positive impact on kids around the country. So when comics started to get more popular, it would stand to reason that the AA was on the list of places who would become involved in helping parents and publishers alike. Make sure that they were safe for kids and that is exactly what they tried to do with just at Frank as director during the nineteen forties. She was heavily involved on both sides through newspaper articles, radio interviews, and countless letters just at work to make sure that comics had a positive impact on kids. While at the same time helping pass along the reassurance to parents that those same comics were safe. For example, in one newspaper article from nineteen Forty-five. Joe set Frank was interviewed about how the character of soup. Oh, man might influence kids. She reassured readers that he would have a good influence by saying, quote, they can enjoy the thrill of danger knowing with full certainty that right will always prevail that good will surely triumph over evil and quote the they, she's referring to is kids reading the comics not to get too far ahead of our story here, but Superman's publisher at the time max Gaines relied on just at Frank's expertise to help make sure Superman's comics where something positive for kids. We don't see max in the movie for a little while yet. But when we do his play by Oliver Platt, even today, there's an award given to quote a book or books of outstanding literary merit in which children or young people deal in a positive and realistic way with difficulties in their world and grow emotionally and morally and quote that awards started in. In nineteen forty-three, and it was given by the child study association of America while jer set was director there today, it's carried on by the Bank street college of education, and the award has been renamed in her honor to the Josette Frank award going back to the movie after being introduced to William Marston. And Joe said Frank in that scene that the movie uses to set up the flashbacks. We get the first flashback as text. Onscreen informs us that now it's the year nineteen twenty eight and we're at Harvard Radcliffe college. William is teaching a class on psychology and on the blackboard, he writes four letters, d, I s c according to William, he says, he's invented a theory that he claims will guide us through the levels of human emotion. D stands for dominance. I for inducement s. stands for submission and see stands for comply. Plants. And while that scene in the classroom is a fictional one just to let us know about Dr Martin's disc model. It is true that he came up with the disc theory. If you're familiar with many of the human behavioral tests like Myers Briggs or Colby disc probably sounds familiar to you. It's another behavioral assessment tool used by thousands of companies today, although technically what you're thinking of wasn't quite invented by Dr Marston. He created the initial disc model which he published in his nineteen twenty eight book called emotions of normal people, but it wasn't until nineteen fifty six. When another psychologist named Walter Vernon, Clark took Dr Marston disc model and turned it into the behavioral assessment tool that were more familiar with today. Going back to the movie. One of the students hearing Luke Evans version of Dr William Marston explained, the disc model is all burn. She's played by Bella Heathcote and we can tell William notices. Olive, by a slight smile that the to share William's wife, Elizabeth notices it to after the class, the husband wife team or sitting on the steps outside the building. They notice olive who sitting on the lawn and little ways off with what we must assume our some of her friends. Elizabeth asks William to stop drooling over all of. He contends that olive signed up to be there assistant from their position on the steps, William and Elizabeth aren't close enough to hear the conversation among all of friends, but they see a man near her and Elizabeth explains what's happening. She says, all if is at war, she can't look at the man trying to flirt with her for too long without him misunderstanding and thinking, she's interested when all of invariably rejects his advances. He will think that she's a slut. Then Elizabeth points out the girl just all is right camera left. She says that girl likes the guy flirting with all, if and as a result hates olive with a passion, there's so much hatred in her eyes. Elizabeth says that she can barely sit there, but she must. They both must because that is the life they've chosen. Breaking from their reading of the situation playing on front of them. Elizabeth tells William that all if will break his heart, then after some chatting back and forth, she tells William to go for she says she doesn't experienced sexual jealousy and who am I to fight nature and with that were presented with how the movie introduces in interesting relationship between William Marston his wife, Elizabeth and olive Byrne, and that is not true. At least that's not how it happened. Oh, and it's probably worth pointing out that Elizabeth was not her first name. Her first name was Sadie Elizabeth was her middle name. She actually preferred her first name Sadie, but William didn't like that. And she didn't like her middling either. So William actually called her Betty. She didn't like that name, but she loved him and it's what he used. So she got used to it. But for our store today. I'm gonna use the name Elizabeth since has what the movie uses. I think that'll be a little bit less confusing. The movie seems to imply that William and Elizabeth met olive in the year nineteen twenty eight, but in truth, it happened earlier than that. We know this because of the next scene in the movie. Remember the one where all of takes William and Elizabeth to her sorority house and the husband wife team watch from the second floor is all of the other sisters have what they refer to as a baby party. As the movie shows. The party seems more like an initiation ceremony where everyone is dressed up like babies from above, William and Elizabeth get aroused by what they're watching while that baby party experiment did happen. But it's also something that we can use to prove that William and olive did not meet in nineteen twenty eight at Radcliffe college, like the movie shows, they actually met in nineteen twenty five at Tufts University, and it's not true that Eliza. Would have been there with William because while he was teaching in Massachusetts that year, she was working a job in New York City. Oh, and sort of like what we learned about Elizabeth not being her first name. All of was not her first name. Either her phone name was
