CRIME SCENE DIORAMAS
Dioramas are 3-dimensional wooden structures depicting the cause and manner of death. This concept originated back in the 1930’s through the 1940’s by Frances Glessner Lee. She designed and constructed a series of 19 with her colleague Dr. Alan Mortz at Harvard.
Lee’s goal was to have each one….which she called, The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death….be utilized in teaching criminal investigations to aspiring detectives.
Combining medicine and police science, Frances Glessner Lee became known as the Mother of Forensic Science.
