Pioneers: Early Women Scientists at Cornell

Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 12:00pm to 6:00pm

Mann Library, Mann Lobby Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

This display explores the lives and work of some of the brilliant and fascinating women engaged in scientific research at Cornell in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Archival images and other resources from our collections illuminate their stories - including ornithologist Elsa Guerdrum Allen’s role in the re-discovery of the ivory-billed woodpecker, anatomist Susanna Phelps Gage’s innovations in modeling the human embryo, and bacteriologist Alice Catherine Evans’ pioneering work on brucellosis. The exhibit is on view through November 2013.
