Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Deaths

Photographs by Corrine May Botz.
Monacelli Press, New York, 2004. 224 pp., 130 color illustrations, 18 line drawings, 8x10½".

Nutshell Studies is Botz's photographic exploration of the 'dollhouses' created by Frances Glessner Lee, an affluent, elderly woman who founded Harvard's Department of Legal Medicine in 1936. Lee built scale models of unsolved crimes that were then used as teaching aids. The in-depth essay points out, however, that Lee projected many of the current views of women and victims into these nutshell studies. The strength of this book is the abundance of material: floor plans of the crime scenes, statements by witnesses, evidential notes and Botz's photographs of the models all presented on black pages.
