Crime Scene Conservation: Preserving the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death. This is the story of the brilliant woman who pioneered the field of forensics in the early 20th century. Frances Glessner Lee co-opted traditionally feminine crafts to advance crime scene investigation and establish herself as one of its leading voices. Our speaker, Smithsonian conservator Ariel O' Connor, will talk about Lee's exquisitely detailed miniature crime scenes, still in use today helping train homicide investigators.
