Er is hier iets merkwaardigs aan de hand. Bijvoorbeeld op de
webpagina
van Florida Memory dat wordt bijgehouden door 't Department of State's Division
of Library and Information Services, staat bij haar foto die dateert van
februari 1969 het volgende biografietje:


Anna Forbes Liddell was born in 1891 in Charlotte, North
Carolina. Liddell received her A.B. in 1918 from the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill and her M.A. at Cornell. She completed a Ph.D. at the
University of North Carolina in 1925. For nearly forty years, 1926-1962, she
taught in the Philosophy and Religion Department at Florida State College for
Women (FSCW, in 1947 became Florida State University), serving as the
department head for most of that time. From 1959-1960 Liddell was the Robert O.
Lawton Distinguished Professor of Philosophy. Liddell died on August 30, 1979
in Tallahassee, Florida.


Ze behaalde echter haar PH.D. niet in 1925, maar in 1924.
Haar dissertatie staat juist vermeld in
wikipedia en in  de Duitse Spinozabibliografie, en luidde


Anna Forbes Liddell, The
Logical Relationship of the Philosophy of Hegel to the Philosophies of Spinoza
and Kant.
Chapel Hill: Univ. of North Carolina [diss.], 1924. Dit blijkt
b.v. ook uit [cf.
