The Morphology of Human Blood Cells (1956)

Dorothy Sturm’s beautiful watercolors are difficult to distinguish from an actual microphotograph (except perhapsthey are clearer and more detailed than a micrograph, and certainly superior to images from the 1950’s). Sturm’s watercolor on paper illustrations, drawn directly from Wright-stained smears prepared by [microbiologists], depicted normal, pathological and infectious hematology with a clarity, detail and beauty that photomicrography of the 1950’s simply couldn’t approach. JAMA, in a review of the first edition, even called her work “of exceptional quality.”

[1] This table showing hematopoiesis (as it was understood in 1956) was the frontispiece of the first edition of Diggs’ The Morphology of Human Blood Cells. Here’s the key to this illustration.

[3] Blood parasites

[4] Fat cells

[5] Megakarocytes and thrombocytes

Is love a tender thing? It is too rough,
Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.

We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls
“You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man”
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
