Good job Don for accuracy! For years, it was common "knowledge" that her
name was Helen Lane.
For what it's worth, the prestigious journal Rolling Stone did a story on
these cells maybe a dozen years ago. The tone of the article was derisive,
about how sloppy scientists are to get their cell lines contaminated etc.
They made the point about her name as another example of "bad science"
