Famous folks from Cambridge
Celebs from other towns
Roberta "Bobbi" Gibb
She was the first woman to run in the Boston Marathon. The Cambridge-born runner went to Tufts, where her father was a professor.
The night of the race, she arrived in town and surprised her parents with a phone call detailing her intentions to run.
"I had to convince my mother that I wasn't totally mad. At first, she didn't understand, until I said, "Look, mom, I'm doing this for myself, but I'm also doing it for all women," she recalled.
