FRANCES GLESSNER LEE’S ROLE IN POLICE SCIENCE AND MODERN FORENSICS
"Author Bruce Goldfarb will discuss his book, 18 Tiny Deaths: The Untold Story of Frances Glessner Lee and the Invention of Modern Forensics. Everything we know and expect in a CSI-type crime scene investigation -- whether in real life or in popular culture -- is due to Frances Glessner Lee. Known mostly as the creator of the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, Goldfarb's book documents Lee's role as a reformer, educator, and activist in the movement from the archaic coroner system to a modern, science-based medical examiner system of death investigation.
