My mother, already engaged to my father, went to college in the 1950s and was interested in geology. She used to tell the story about how her geology professor tried to kick her and another engaged woman out of his class so real students, not just girls looking for husbands, could take their seats. She ended up becoming a teacher as there weren't many other career alternatives at the time but she always liked geology.

/my dad used to like to tell the story where he picked up my mother at Penn Station from a trip out west and when jokingly asking if she had rocks in her very heavy suitcase she replied yes.
