Must be something in the field of mathematics and physics (and archaeology) - quite a few live to a grand age!

Arthur ApSimon - (1927–2019) He was 91. Like Isobel Smith, Arthur was research assistant to Gordon Childe in London. He went to Queen’s University Belfast, then to the new Department of Archaeology in Southampton.
A bit late, but I only heard about his passing just recently

 There a branch or 2 here in NZ . It was big in the 80s. I knew a few young ladies  who attended  classes during school holidays. 
Theyy all got portfolios at the end of the course it was a great encouragement to the tall girls . A couple of them went on to do a little modeling work.
