The third place went to User:Masti from Poland, who created articles about Olga Taussky-Todd – an Austrian and Czech mathematician, Grete Mostny (Liridon wrote it a day earlier!), Elise Richter – a philologist from Austria, Zabel Yesayan – an Armenian professor of literature, Berta Karlik – the first female professor at the University of Vienna, and Helene Richter – an Austrian anglicist.
