    Biographical / Historical

    Louise Hanson Marshall was born on October 2, 1908 in Perrysburg, Ohio. She earned a AB (1930) and an MA (1932 from Vassar College and Ph.D in Physiology from the University Chicago (1935). She began her career as a research physiologist and taught courses in nutrition, metabolism, and excretion. She took time off to start a family, then joined the NIH wartime Aviation Medicine Unit, followed by twenty years with the National Institute of Arthritis and Metabolic Disorders, working in the field of renal physiology. She joined the National Research Council (NRC) at the National Academy of Sciences in 1965. In 1975, Louise joined the UCLA Brain Research Institute as managing editor of the journal Experimental Neurology. After her official "retirement" in 1979, she continued to work for more than twenty years, devoting herself to the field of neuroscience history and to the task of establishing that field as a discipline in itself. She along with Horace "Tid" Magoun established the Neuroscience History Resource Program at UCLA in 1980, which evolved into the Neuroscience History Archives; she served as its director for many years. She died July 12, 2004, at the age of 94. Source: http://www.bri.ucla.edu/news/neuroscience-news-fall-2003
