Martha Hardy, known to many on campus as Granny Cart Lady, passed away Wednesday at the age of 91 due to a recent illness. Though she was not enrolled at Tulane University, Hardy attended many classes over the years, including physical geology, great ideas in science and introduction to psychology. According to the Times-Picayune, she was born in Memphis, Tenn. March 12, 1918, and attended Louisiana State University of New Orleans (now the University of New Orleans) in 1966. She is survived by her son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. A more in-depth coverage of Hardy’s experience in the New Orleans community will be available in the next edition of the Hullabaloo.
