AARP founder Ethel Percy Andrus was ahead of her time. She was talking about aging in place 50 years before anyone else. She also established the first of what is now known as retirement communities. 

She went from teacher to high school principal to senior advocate. 

Read this great article from the Fillmore Gazette (Calif.) about a museum exhibit, “Ethel Percy Andrus: How One Woman Changed America” in Ojai, Calif.

IMAGES FROM D-DAY  70 YEARS AGO

A photographer’s images document a summer of liberation 70 years ago. American John G. Morris, who now lives in Paris, is a former picture editor for theNew York Times and Ladies’ Home Journal. During World War II, he was the London picture editor for Life magazine. After D-Day, in the summer of 1944, the 27-year-old Morris joined the Allied armies in Normandy. “It was about the only time I carried a camera,” he says. Morris’ new book of his photographs is Somewhere in France.
