Dorcas Hager Padget (1906-1973), a largely self-taught illustrator, became a more polished artist under Max Brödel at Johns Hopkins Hospital, before going to work for neurosurgeon Walter Dandy. In search of more information on vascular anatomy, she became an expert neuroembryologist, first in the development of arteries and veins and later chiefly involved with anomalies of neural tube development. She was able to clarify the development of the Arnold-Chiari and Dandy-Walker syndromes.
