For­ever young

THE (Times Higher Education) - - LETTERS -

In the bi­o­graph­i­cal sketch of Kori Schake, the au­thor of Safe Pas­sage: The Tran­si­tion from Bri­tish to Amer­i­can Hege­mony (“When Bri­tan­nia waived its rule”, Books, 8 Fe­bru­ary), Matthew Reisz writes that Schake “was born in Sonoma, Cal­i­for­nia, ‘not far from where gold was dis­cov­ered in 1848’’’. I just wanted to say how re­mark­ably well I think Schake looks in the pho­to­graph ac­com­pa­ny­ing the ar­ti­cle for some­one who will turn 170 this year.
