"18 Tiny Deaths: The Untold Story of Frances Glessner Leeand the Invention of Modern Forensics"



Thursday, April 2 @ 2:40 p.m.

Bruce Goldfarb. author

Frances Glessner Lee, the mother of forensic science, has been the inspiration for a coffee table picture book, two documentaries, two books of poetry, an exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and a crime drama television show story. But her life story has not been told until now. Depicted as an eccentric millionaire, Lee was a reformer, educator, advocate, and agent of change. Sheis largely responsible for the CSI-type crime scene investigation, both in the field and in popular culture. Bruce Goldfarb, an award-winning reporter whose work has appeared in many publications, including USA Today, Washington Post, Baltimore magazine, and American Health, will discuss the undertaking of “18 Tiny Deaths,” and some new material such as Lee’s previously unreleased FBI file. Since 2012, Goldfarb has been executive assistant to the Chief Medical Examiner for Maryland state.

ADMISSION: Free to the public
