      Berenice Abbott (1898-1991), best known for her straightforward photographs documenting the changing New York City of the 1930s, also made important contributions to science photography through her work with the Physical Science Study Committee (PSSC), formed at MIT in 1956 to improve the quality of introductory physics education in American high schools. Joining the project at MIT in 1958 she developed many innovative techniques for capturing scientific phenomena. Over seventy of these historic photographs will be on view, along with documents, magazine articles, books and editions of the PSSC textbook where Abbott's science photographs were originally published.
