Scott Nelson is a senior studying History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and will graduate in 2015. Prior to college, Scott graduated from H.B. Plant High School in Tampa, Florida. He wrote this paper during the fall semester of 2014 in a history seminar entitled Bodies on Display: Perspectives of the Body in American Culture. Scott was inspired to research the history of body snatching because of his passion for medicine -- he plans on attending medical school after graduation. Scott would like to thank Professor John Kasson for his tireless enthusiasm and helpful guidance throughout the entire research process.
