Margaret Moore Kennedy (1896-1967)

Smithsonian Institution Archives
This photographŒs caption explained that English novelist Margaret Moore Kennedy (1896-1967) "has demonstrated that a good story can be written which follows the rules of heredity." KennedyŒs novel The Fool of the Family had been recently praised by geneticist Wilhelmine Marie Euteman Key (b. 1872), "... it is not necessary to ignore the laws of heredity in order to produce an interesting fiction family.... Dr. Key says that Margaret Kennedy's appeal to heredity, is entirely in line with the latest conclusions in the field." (Marjorie Van de Water, "False Fiction Families," Science News Letter, August 29, 1931).

Gifts from our elders / by Kerry McAleer-Keeler

Smithsonian Libraries
Title from pencilled script on back of box and Joshua Heller Rare Books website; date from website.

Unique artists' book, signed by the artist on inside cover.

"'Heredity, family origin, and womanhood are key topics addressed in my work. 'Gifts from Our Elders' reflects this celebration of femininity and famliy history. 'Gifts' is a book object that pays tribute to the things that are given to us through heredity and the gift of life. Old medical pop-ups point out the awards of sensitivity and the heart--while an image of the brain sectioned into zone parts denotes the favor of intellect and a love for the arts passed on by legacy and genetics. Lastly, Victorian French fashion advertisements communicate an ovation to virility, womanliness, and life cycle." -- Quote by the artist from Joshua Heller Rare Books website (viewed January 28, 2014).

Materials used: Bookboard, decorative papers, bookcloth, cyanotype, and found materials: hourglass, antique glasses, wrapped manikin hand, medical and spiritual illustrations, feathers, sheet music, tides chart, butterfly, T.S. Eliot excerpt (The Four Quartets: East Coker) and French Victorian fashion advertisements. The contents of the box are visible through a piece of glass.

Medal

National Museum of American History
The obverse of this silver medal has a portrait bust ¾ left and “XC ANNO VERTENTE A G. MENDEL LECIBVS DETECTIS.” The reverse has a building and “MENDELIANUM GENETICAE INSTITUTUM / ROMAE-MCMLV.” This was issued in 1955, to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the discovery of the Mendelian laws of heredity. It probably belonged to Chevalier L. Jackson (1865-1958), the American physician who invented the bronchoscope; or perhaps to his son of the same name.
