But the searing images are from the 1940s, taken by photographer Jack Delano, whose remarkable archive now resides at Columbia. Social problems are but a small part of his photographic work. The collection itself, with its sweep of joy and vibrancy, offers a picture of what is now missed.

The Helen and Robert Appel Alzheimer’s Disease Research Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College uses a multidisciplinary approach to study the causes of dementia and develop ways to prevent and treat them. Close cooperation between clinicians and basic researchers allows the Appel Institute to take discoveries from bench to bedside and back again, learning from patients as well as from cellular and animal models of disease. Its motto, “No Stone Unturned,” reflects its mission: to do everything possible to rid humanity of the scourge of neurodegenerative disorders.

Sadly, Barbara also never bothered to even give him a modest gravemarker. There is nothing there so you can walk over over his dead body and never know it.

Creative, brave, daring, the baroness leads a Bohemian life before it was popular and sets the tone for others to follow.
