Abstract

In June 2016 brain cancer took the life of Alison Winter, age fifty, snuffing out the incandescent spirit that so brightened her professional and personal worlds. A professor of history at the University of Chicago at the time of her death, Alison was a leading scholar in the social, cultural, and legal history of the sciences of mind. She had published some two dozen articles, book chapters, reviews, and two prizewinning books—Mesmerized: Powers of Mind in Victorian Britain (1998) and Memory: Fragments of a Modern History (2012). In the interval between the two books, she and her husband, the historian Adrian Johns, had four children, each of whom was one of the joys of her life. Throughout her career, she imprinted her imaginative zest for living and learning and her love of music and literature on her colleagues, students, friends, and family alike.
