I kind of pictured her looking like...well...Miss Agnes Wells:

In 1919, Wells transferred to Indiana University to become IU’s Dean of Women and an instructor of mathematics at the invitation of President William Lowe Bryan.
She looks like my primary grade teachers all rolled into one.

Mr. Spookcat is amazed by the amount of lightning strike victims.

Amazing indeed.  We must remember that farms were plentiful back in those days.  Lots of open fields with a tree here and there, which people naturally gravitate to in order to wait out a storm.  Lightning of course, likes to seek out things that rise above the ground, like houses, barns, trees and people.
