Smithsonian uploads to Flickr Commons this week

Mary Blade, standing at blackboard, originally uploaded by Smithsonian Institution.

In observance of Women’s History month, a lot of institutions participating in the Flickr Commons project are uploading archival photos of women. So I’m having a fine time. But the Smithsonian’s uploads this week are women scientists from the 1940s and before–like Mary Blade, above, an engineering professor at Cooper Union. Like Annie Jump Cannon.  Like Mary Agnes Chase.   Great stuff, check it out.
