Inglewood's living memory, Gladys Waddingham, is back at her kitchen table, penning her seventh history--this one about the women of her city. Rushing against the deadline of her own mortality, the 94-year-old former schoolteacher spends most of her days, and many of her nights, leafing through folders, newspaper clippings and her own diary to work on the book she will dedicate to the memory of her mother. "When you're almost 95, you have a different perspective," Waddingham says, winking.
