Grace Hopper: Computer Scientist & United States Navy Rear Admiral

Grace Hopper

Today, Grace Hopper was added to the list of people to find using your Duckwyn passport.

Grace Hopper was an early computer scientist and United States Navy rear admiral. Her work in the early days of computer programming led to many practices that are still used today. Her work on the first compiler made it easier to program using English terms that could then be converted to machine code. She retired from the Navy 1986 and went on to continue her computers as a consultant for Digital Equipment Corporation.

Visit a small park near where she lived in Arlington, Virginia to find and collect her card today.
