(p.214) 21 The “Amoeba Treatment”
On Her Own Terms

Barbara R. Stein

University of California Press

This chapter discusses the treatments for “endamoebic dysentrine” that Alexander and Kellogg went through upon their return home. They even admitted themselves into a sanatorium after they observed no immediate improvements. The discussion notes that Alexander's restlessness, which she had been experiencing before her trips abroad, continued after she and Kellogg were released from the sanatorium. Her intestinal ailments, which she contracted during her trip to Egypt, persisted. The next sections describe the women's various expeditions to find small mammals, which probably reflected Alexander's disappointment and frustration with the unstable situation in paleontology. The chapter also relates the arrival of a new Ford truck, Alexander's treatments for intestinal problems, her canyon expeditions, and a three-month collecting trip through Lyon, Nye, and Mineral counties.

Keywords:   endamoebic dysentrine, intestinal ailments, expeditions, small mammals, unstable situation, paleontology, collecting trip
