I want to use the massive wikipedia database to look for people alive in a given profession that match a certain criteria such as age or their alma mater.

Suppose, I want to find a list of political scientist currently alive who are over 85 years old and went to Yale, how would I go about doing this in Wikipedia? Or perhaps I am interested in finding fiction writers or authors alive who were born before January 1, 1924. What would be the best way to do this? What sort of language or application I would need to use to get this accomplished?
