image: Class Notes headlinePatricia Cline Cohen, AB'68, The Murder of Helen Jewett: The Life and Death of a Prostitute in Nineteenth-Century New York (Knopf, Vintage). Cohen reconstructs the career of Jewett, a literary New York courtesan whose 1836 murder sparked journalistic sensationalism surrounding the event and the trial of Jewett's lover.

Sherrie L. Lyons, PhD'90, Thomas Henry Huxley: The Evolution of a Scientist (Prome- theus Books). In this biography, Lyons explores the biologist Thomas Henry Huxley's commitment to scientific reasoning and argues that while Huxley was skeptical of natural selection and gradualism, his contributions to Darwin's ideas strengthened the theory of evolution.

Katharine Parker Riddle, SM'42, A Nourishing Life (Pentland Press, Inc.). In her autobiography, Riddle recounts her missionary work in India, her support of lesbian issues, her work in nutrition, and the three-year life span of the Nourishing Space, a place for women in Arizona.
