Hedwig Kohn, portrait

Portrait of Hedwig Kohn, circa 1952.

 

Hedwig Kohn's will decreed that her papers and correspondence be destroyed, but it also said that her coworkers and colleagues at Duke University should have the opportunity to select some mementos from her belongings. In this way, her collection of photographs was saved from destruction, and eventually came to us. Photo courtesy of AIP Emilio Segrč Visual Archives, Kohn Photo Collection.
