Agnes Rivers, who is turning 100 years old on Jan. 1, 2015, was given the Boston Post Cane for the town of Florida on Friday for being the town's oldest resident.

Detailing the famed theoretician's life both before and after he is struck with motor neuron disease, it's all quite stiff upper lip and all that, old man. As such, it is an uplifting paean to the human condition as well
