26. I think you need a lot more than formal learning in order to be a

Suzanne Keller was a visiting lecturer in sociology at Princeton for three years before she was granted tenured faculty status in 1968, becoming the first female professor at the University a year before undergraduate coeducation began.  The author of numerous articles and books such as The Urban Neighborhood and Beyond the Ruling Class, Keller has held several elective offices in the American Sociological Association, including vice-president, and received many fellowships and honors, including a two-year Fulbright Lectureship at the Athens Center of Ekistics in 1963 and a Guggenheim in 1972.  She helped to launch the Program of Women’s Studies at Princeton and continues to work in her field, studying communities, social stratification, comparative family systems, and corporate leadership.
