Interviewing BettyMac

January 28th, 2006 Posted in Uncategorized

I’ve been scanning thousands of letters for the past month, mostly letters about experiments, and while interesting, they’re often dense and dry. Then I started seeing letters from BettyMac. They were about experiments too, but they were also about the people in the lab, what they were up to, who had a date that night, etc. They were gossipy and fun. I decided I liked BettyMac. Thanks to her I’ll be able to humanize these scientists when I write about them. Then I learned that BettyMac is still around. She’s in her 80’s and lives a half an hour away.

Today I interview BettyMac. This is her when she worked at the lab. (She looks about 14, right?)
