Michael John Hogan, AJ Alvarado and Joan Esperson Weddell : Histology of the human eye : An atlas and textbook, Saunders, Philadelphia, 1971.
Ms Joan Esperson Weddell drew imaginatively and anatomically correct masterpieces. Her style ( which is not downright didactical but inspiring ), is unique and yes, lightyears away from glossy, dumb Big Pharma Owned brochures. Her marvellous insights into eye structures are now ours. However, what is truly remarkable and almost beyond belief is exactly how she managed to inspire others. Back in med school years, I never saw anything like this. This author worked as if she simply lived inside the eye and flew within the eyeballs, in the orbits, as if these were not restricting bony sockets. She took me with her. And what we saw was beyond description, contagious and silencing. Looking inside Hogan, Weddell and Alvarado's masterpiece I made discoveries that were passed to my successors. Others, also, will never forget her.
All my hidden career in medical research, miles away from the Big Five's in Pharmaceutically owned and operated Autobahns, was built with new understanding developed as I had these Weddell illustrations in my mind !
