She was born November 12, 1923 in Boston, Massachusetts. She worked at the pathology lab at Scripps Memorial Hospital and authored A Manual for Histological Technician which was published in three editions by Little, Brown & Co.  I'm old and lucky enough to have a copy of her book in my lab and I'm sure many others out there may also have a copy.
