Lois E. Flamm
According to Dan, her husband of 53 years, the cause was Lewy body dementia, which she had been fighting since a diagnosis in early 2014.
Several years back, Lois wrote for her Skidmore College class of ’66 history, “Following my junior year, I roomed at Columbia University IHouse (International Student House) at Columbia University. Returning from a date one night, I met Dan Flamm, an MIT student, playing his guitar near a stairwell (Dan had a summer job with Shell Chemical at Rockefeller Center). I dated Dan that summer, before we went to our respective homes for a couple of weeks, met up again in Cambridge, and married at the end of October, 1965. Our first son, Jonathan, was born in Saratoga Springs on May 17, 1966 during my senior year, and our second son Stephen was born three years later in Boston. Dan and I lived in Westgate, MIT married student housing in Cambridge while I was a graduate student at Northeastern University in Boston, and Dan at MIT. Dan jokes that our kids went through college twice, once with us and once without us.”
22-year old Lois’ Northeastern Ph.D. research in experimental psychology used a stimulator, eye movement detection system, and electrodes coupled to a PDP8I computer system to record and process electrophysiological responses to uncover relationships between visual evoked cortical potentials and paced saccadic displacements of stimuli. Later, as a professor at Texas A&M University during 1972-76, also a wife and young mother raising two young boys, she pioneered use of eye movement tracking cameras to investigate factors affecting conspicuity for pilot landing systems while a visiting faculty fellow at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. Her research at Texas A&M spanned a diverse range of fields including perceptual stability, the relationship between eye movements and reversable figures, visual search, visual electrophysiology, and water use and water conservation.
In 1977 Lois left Texas A&M to join the Human Factors Engineering Group, Loop Transmission Division at Bell Laboratories in Whippany, New Jersey, as a Member of the Technical Staff (MTS) where she pioneered human factors support, and methods for overcoming interface problems in the engineering, development and evaluation of new apparatus for outside plant craft. She went on to join the Distributed Computer Systems Research Department of Bell Labs at Murray Hill, N.J., in 1982, earning a master’s equivalent in computer science in the Bell Labs in-house curriculum. Her work with John O. Limb led to the seminal invention of protocols for simultaneously transmitting voice and data over a local area network or the intern... May 24, 2018
Flower power for hungry folks
I seem to be blessed with friends who delight in doing such stuff. Connie Mertz, an outdoor writer colleague and great friend of mine who lives in Danville, is great at sniffing out all sorts of edible goodies. I confess that I will be in big trouble if ever I am in a survival situation in the wilderness somewhere because I won’t have an idea what to eat and what to avoid.
But Connie especially loves to use violets, yes ordinary violets, that I will see everywhere when I am spring gobbler hunting. She tells me that one half cup of the common blue violets has as much vitamin C as four oranges. So obviously, they are good for the common spring cold.
Connie makes a really wonderful pancake syrup from violets. I love it! I eat this stuff if someone else finds it, harvests it, cleans it, cooks it and then gives some to me, and in fact, I cherish it if a friend gives me a tad. Just fill a quart jar with violet blossoms, packing in as many as you can. To the flowers, add just enough boiling water to cover and let stand 24 hours with the jar capped tightly.
If that concoction doesn’t explode, strain the purple juice, add the juice of one half lemon and two cups of sugar to each cup of violet liquid. Simply bring the whole thing to a boil and then seal it in pint jars.
Connie also makes a violet-ade by using 4 or 5 tablespoons of the syrup in a glass of iced water. The violet syrup can be used to flavor Jell-O or poured over ice cream or cake and some folks even make violet jelly.
I’m going to share a couple recipes for using dandelions, although I can assure you I won’t be using them. But they have been tested by those who are up for this sort of thing. It’s comical to me because I have a lot of friends who turn their nose up at eating wild meat but will sit down to a meal of dandelion pancakes. There’s no explaining it.
PANCAKES WITH DANDELION FLOWERS
n one cup of flower
n 1 tsp. sugar
n 1/4 tsp. salt
n 1 tsp. basking soda
n 1 egg
n 1 cup of milk
n 3/4 cup dadelion petals
Note: Remove yellow petals from green base
n 2 tbsp. melted butter
Sift dry ingredients together, beat in egg, milk and dandelion petals. Melt butter and add to mixture. Makes about a dozen pancakes.
If dandelion root coffee appeals to you, dig up one pound of dandelion roots. Scrub thoroughly under cold water. Dry roots on a cooking sheet in 225 degree oven for five hours or until they are discolored and brittle. Grind roots in coffee mill and brew as coffee using about three-fourths as much as you would with regular coffee.
