A ninety year old person; someone whose age is in the nineties.
There seemed to be relatively few octogenarians and nonagenarians alive in the early 1930s.
Nonagenarian derives from Latin nonagenarius, "containing or consisting of ninety," from nonageni-, "ninety each", ultimately from novem, "nine," as in November, originally the ninth month of the old Roman calendar.
