Henry DeYoung dictates his answers to a homework assignment — word by word, symbol by symbol — to a student volunteer from Franklin Regional High School in 2008. Volunteers aided Henry, who can’t fully use his hands, with typing twice a week. Copyright Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 2021, all rights reserved. Reprinted with permission.

Brothers Andrew and Henry DeYoung have accomplished something very few siblings do: They defended their doctoral theses at Carnegie Mellon University within a few weeks of each other. Henry defended in December, and Andrew defended Jan. 22.
