Mallory O’Meara & Catherine Whitlock

April 5, 2020

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with writer, film producer, and screenwriter MALLORY O’MEARA. Her new book details her long quest to uncover the details of the life of Milicent Patrick, Disney animator and designer of one of the most iconic monsters of Universal films: the Creature from the Black Lagoon. The reason Patrick’s story was so tough to uncover is that her role in the design of several monsters at Universal had been purposely minimized and covered up. O’Meara’s book is THE LADY FROM THE BLACK LAGOON: HOLLYWOOD MONSTERS AND THE LOST LEGACY OF MILICENT PATRICK.

Women have made important contributions to science, but often their long years of research have gone unrecognized and is underappreciated. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with CATHERINE WHITLOCK. She has a PhD in Immunology and writes about science for numerous websites and magazines. Along with DR. RHODRI EVANS,  they have written: 10 WOMEN WHO CHANGED SCIENCE AND THE WORLD: TRAILBLAZERS, PIONEERS, AND REVOLUTIONARIES. Tune in and learn about scientists like Dorothy Hodgkin and Rita Levi-Montalcini.
