Goldie Michelson, a Clark University alum M.A. 1936, and Worcester resident, is now the oldest person in the United States at 113 years of age. Michelson is also the oldest jew in the world. 

She took the title after Susannah Mushatt Jones passed away last week at 116 years of age. 

Michelson will celebrate her 114th birthday in August. 

The Michelson Theater on the Clark University campus is named after her. 

The oldest person ever from the United States was Sarah Knauss at 119 years old. Knauss passed away on December 30, 1999.
