Please join the Monroe County Democratic Committee and Executive Film Producer, Patti Kenner, for our candidate meet & greet fundraiser and a special documentary "AHEAD OF TIME, The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber" (2009).

A documentary on the remarkable life of Ruth Gruber. Brooklyn-born Ruth became the world's youngest PhD at age 20. At age 24, she became a New York Herald Tribune reporter and photographer and the same year was the first journalist to enter the Soviet Arctic. A trusted member of the Roosevelt Administration during WWII, she was given a dangerous secret mission. A feminist before feminism, Ruth was never just an observer, she was a participant in the making of history. Ruth covered the turbulent Middle East throughout the 1940's, and the film combines verité footage of Ruth traveling back to Israel, with interviews and archival material. - IMDB
