Coretta Scott King (1927-2006)

The widow of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, who became a civil rights leader in her own right, is dead at age 78. In 1987, Scott King received an honorary doctorate from the University of Notre Dame, in the same ceremony which saw an earned doctorate conferred upon a soon-to-be Upper Canadian assistant professor of political science. David Rockefeller and former first lady Rosalind Carter also received honorary doctorates on the same occasion.
