Amazing Grace

Today’s Google Doodle celebrates Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, pioneering computer programmer and “mother of COBOL” with several buildings, a street, a park, a bridge and a US Navy destroyer named after her.

I could imagine an adventure with the young Grace at Yale (before she became the first woman in its history to graduate with a doctorate in mathematics) or her work during the War. The way she figured out how alarm clocks worked by dismantling several when she was a child would certainly appeal to the Doctor.
