Frances Glessner Lee was the mother of modern forensic medicine; as an heiress and socialite, she might have been expected by her peers to live a staid, placid life. Her immersion into the gory and sometimes alarming world of post-mortem medical work led to remarkable scientific advancement in the field. Working on the famous "Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death" - realistic miniature dioramas of crime scenes for training purposes - made her a household name, but her diligence in outreach and research made her irreplaceable.
