Fleming, Williamina Paton


Mina Stevens Fleming, the first to discover stars called "white dwarfs", was born May 15, 1857 in Dundee, Scotland. She attended public schools in Dundee and then taught in Dundee from age fourteen until her marriage to James Fleming in 1877. The couple emigrated to Boston when she was twenty-one. A year later she was abandoned by her husband while pregnant with their child. To support herself and the baby, Mina Fleming obtained work as a maid in the home of Prof. Edward Pickering, the director of the Harvard Observatory.
