The models were Grant Wood’s sister and their family dentist.

Dr. Irwin Moon, founder of the Moody Institute of Science and former director of the Moody Bible Institute, directs electricity through his body, c. 1940s, Chicago.

Moon’s Sermons from Science demonstrations incorporated both scientific and theological Christian theories.

Reminded me of the recent debate on evolution vs. creationism between “Science Guy” Bill Nye and the founder of the Creation Museum, Ken Ham.

Boarding the North Shore Line in the Loop, 1941, Chicago. Malcolm McCarter from David Sadowksi’s CERA blog,

Update: Nice note from David Sadowski:

FYI, the actual credit line on the Electroliner photo should read that it was taken by Malcom D. McCarter in 1941.  I’ve been meaning to update it on the CERA blog since I have the wrong date.  (The date was on the back of the photo and probably is when the picture was printed.)
Thanks for looking at my blog.  Interestingly, Mr. McCarter is still alive and well.
