Happy Holidays!

The very charming drawing below is the work of the late Dr. Elizabeth McMahan—BettyMac to her friends. BettyMac was a scientist and a researcher at the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory from 1943 to 1954 (and she died in 2009).

When I was researching the history of the former Duke Parapsychology Laboratory, BettyMac’s letters were my favorites to read because she always included personal details and I feel like I got to know the lab scientists, many long gone, through her.

I couldn’t find a list of illustrations to explain this drawing, but I believe she made it in 2001, and I’m guessing it was for her nieces and nephews. Thank you for sharing your wonderful drawings BettyMac, and Happy Holidays everyone!
