Cora Ratto de Sadosky ( 1912 - 1981 )  Category ( Mathematicians ) [suggest a correction]
 

Cora Ratto Sadosky was born in 1912 and became an inspiration to those in the field of mathematics as well as to those throughout the world who supported many of the same endeavors that Sadosky supported. Cora was well focused on those things that she deemed as important.

Sadosky graduated from the University of Buenes Aires. She was devoted in her pursuits of opposition against Nazism and she supported the Spanish Republic. Both were widely known by those who knew Cora Ratto Sadosky.

Cora married Manuel Sadosky and the couple shared a daughter. Their daughter also carried the same love of mathematics like her mother.

After the Nazis invaded the Soviet Union, Cora created The Victory Union which was an alliance to help those who were committed to the anti-Nazi war regime. Their efforts resulted in donated food and supplies for fighting troops during the 1940s.

A mathematical genius, Cora co-authored Introduction to Linear Algebra with Mischa Cotlar. It would become the first document of its type to be published in Spanish.

Cora Ratto Sadosky was a dedicated die-hard persistent woman when it came to supporting those who needed to find support. She fought against discrimination and supported those who spoke out against prejudice in race.

Sadosky's achievements within her discipline of mathematics often pales in comparison to those groups that she supported for human rights improvements. Additionally, her documentation of the U.S. Green Berets and their efforts were revealed in the Columna 10 which would later become one of her reasons for sliding underground to finish living out her life in exile. Her life was threatened because of various information she was privy to or because she speculated with too-close-for-comfort accuracy.

Today, her legacy lives on through the Sadosky Prize. It is a prize awarded to young women for excellence in mathematics. However, Sadosky succeeded in far more areas of life outside the realm of mathematical study.
