[dinosaur] Longest living paleontologist

Good day!

Please excuse me, if this is an inappropriate question, but I was wondering, who was the longest living paleontologist? I guess Edwin H. Colbert (1905-2001) is close with 96 years, although geologist Joseph Burr Tyrrell (1858-1957) was older with almost 99 years and evolutionist Ernst Mayr (1904-2005) even more with almost 101 years of age. Was or is there any other paleontologist/geologist older than that? Thank you, in advance. Tom
