Let’s see, we’ve got:
- Willamette Porter Cockerell and Theodore Cockerell, on top with the sunflowers. “Before and after their marriage in 1900, they frequently went on collecting expeditions together and assembled a large private library of natural history films, which they showed to schoolchildren and public audiences to promote the cause of environmental conservation.”
- On the bottom left are Gerty Cori and Carl Cori, who were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine.
- Then Marion Brickwedde with Ferdinand G. Brickwedde, showing off their apparatus for making heavy water.
- And finally, Mary Douglas Leakey and Louis Leakey, who are obviously hatching an unholy scheme of some kind, but are being very cute about it.
