The world’s new oldest person: Gertrude Weaver, 116, of Arkansas

April 2, 2015

optimismOn the day Gertrude Weaver is said to have been born, the U.S. had just won a major victory in the Spanish-American War, and you could see a matinee show at the Los Angeles Theater downtown for 25 cents..

On Wednesday, nearly 117 years later, Weaver had her nails painted pink. Though the Arkansas native enjoys her regular manicures, this one was special: At 116, she’s now believed to be the oldest person in the world.
