Our name honors Hypatia of Alexandria [pronounced hy-pay-sha]. “The last scientist who worked in the Library [of Alexandria] was a mathematician, astronomer, physicist and the head of the Neoplatonic school of philosophy–Her name was Hypatia. She was born in Alexandria in 370 BC. At a time when women had few options, and were treated as property, Hypatia moved freely and unselfconsciously through traditional male domains…she was a symbol of learning and science. …she continued to teach and publish, until, in the year 415, on her way to work she was set upon by a fanatical mob [and murdered]…” (Carl Sagan)
