St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Anonymous Too Long—STL Women Shorted on Credit for Scientific Work
The Institute’s social media editor interviewed about campaign to identify unnamed women scientists in photo.

In March, the Philadelphia-based institute uploaded a photo taken in the 1940s at the Jewish Hospital of St. Louis, now part of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The group portrait shows the late Dr. Michael Somogyi, a renowned physician and biochemist at Washington University, and five female laboratory assistants, identified as “female laboratory assistants.”
