Notable Women in the Physical Sciences: A Biographical Dictionary

By Benjamin F. Shearer; Barbara S. Shearer | Go to book overview

Society would award her the Garvan Medal for her contributions to biochemistry at its annual meeting in 1958. The Garvan Medal, begun in 1937, was created to honor a woman scientist for distinguished service in the field of chemistry. The 1948 winner of the medal was her former collaborator, Gerty Cori, for enzymatic synthesis and reactions. The acknowledgment had to be sweet: "Arda Green did not always receive the recognition which she deserved, partly because she always worked in the shadow of men of great scientific reputation. The uniformly high quality of her research over the years makes it clear that she had a unique talent which was responsible for her success." 6

Arda Green died at Sinai Hospital in January 1958 of carcinoma of the breast at the age of 57. She was to have been awarded the Garvan Medal in San Francisco in April of the same year. Her sister, Metta Claire Green Lewis, accepted the award on her behalf.
