Best Day Job

This self-taught woman has the life of Indiana Jones.

from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2004

The usual to-do list for Sue Hendrickson: excavate a shipwreck off Cuba, explore a sunken Egyptian city, and hunt dinosaurs in the American West. A self-taught paleontologist and marine archeologist, Hendrickson is best known for her 1990 discovery of “Sue,” the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. Since then she’s gone on to uncover other remarkable artifacts on land and sea. Not bad for a high school dropout.
