    Albert Emmett Kent, son of Albert and Lucinda (Gillette) Kent, was born on September 1, 1830, in Suffield, Conn.

    After graduation he engaged in the grain and produce business with his brother in Chicago with success, but his health at length became so seriously impaired that he sought restoration in the climate of California. In 1871 he purchased a large estate at San Rafael, where he made his home, but business interests called him back to Chicago for part of the time.

    In 1885 he presented to the University funds for the erection of the Kent Chemical Laboratory, and by his will left a generous bequest for the enlargement of that building.

    He died at t,he home of his sister in Genoa, Nebr., on January 8 1901, at the age of 70 years.

    He married on July 28, 1857, Miss Adaline E. Dutton, of Springville, N.Y. She survives him with one son, a graduate of Yale in the class of 1887. A son and daughter died in early life.

    Two 1901 Nance County, Nebraska newspaper clippings posted to Albert Emmet Kent's Find a Grave page:

    First clipping: Albert E. Kent died at Genoa last Wednesday at the home of his niece, Mrs. E. L. Burk, where he was visiting. Mr. Kent was the senior member of the Kent Cattle company. He was 70 years of age and was called the pioneer packer of the west. His remains were taken to Chicago for interment.

    Second clipping: Tuesday at Genoa occurred the sudden death from heart failure of Mr. Wm. Kent, principal stock holder in the Kent cattle company. The deceased was 76 years old and his death was not unexpected as he has been a sufferer for years from heart disease.

    His home was in California, and he was in this county visiting relatives. His remains were taken to Chicago for interment.

    Elizabeth 'Bibbs' [sic] Arnold of Los Altos, a mathematician, environmentalist and wildlife advocate who helped crack the Japanese code during World War II, died Friday, Sept. 18, 1992, at her Los Altos Hills home of lung cancer. She was 76.

    A native of San Francisco, Dr. Arnold was reared in Marin County and was the oldest grandchild of Rep. William Kent, for whom the city of Kentfield was named.

    The daughter of a prominent San Francisco attorney, Eugene Arnold, she attended the Katherine Branson School in Ross and graduated first in her class in 1932. The school later named a day in her honor after she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa at Vassar College in her junior year.

    After graduating from Vassar in 1937, Dr. Arnold earned her Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1941.

    During World War II, Dr. Arnold was recruited by the Navy and worked on a team of cryptographers cracking Japanese codes, for which she received a Meritorious Civilian Service Award.

    In the 1960s, Dr. Arnold worked on machine language translation at Lockheed Missiles and Space Co. Inc.

    After her retirement in 1969, Dr. Arnold helped establish a recycling center in Los Altos and worked with Wildlife Rescue, helping injured animals.

    Dr. Arnold is survived by her husband of 46 years, Dr. William Francis Whitmore of Los Altos; four sons, Charles Whitmore of Washington, D.C., Edward Whitmore of San Francisco, Thomas Whitmore of Oakland and Peter Whitmore of Victoria, B.C. Also surviving are her brothers, George Stanleigh Arnold of Kentfield, Peter Arnold of Grass Valley and Anthony Arnold of Novato.

    Note that the above obituary is in error in two respects. Her father was George Stanleigh Arnold, not Eugene Arnold; and her family nickname was "Bibba", not "Bibbs."

    Her page at the Mathematics Genealogy Project is here, showing her to be a generation of advisors closer to Felix Klein than her husband was.
