Pearl Bailey photographed by Carl Van Vechten in 1946. Did you know that Ms. Bailey earned a B.A. in Theology from Georgetown University in 1985 at the age of 67? Initially, she majored in French, but she switched to theology “Because it’s easier to know the Lord that it is to know French.” Photo: Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library
