About this Item: Butterworths, London, 1962. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. Former library copy. Only library marks are stamps on spine bases and stamps on copyright pages. 'Nell Mondy' in ink on front endpaper, minor pencil marks in text by former owner and Cornell professor Dr. Nell I. Mondy. 1962 Hard Cover. Includes numerous charts & graphs. PROVENANCE: This and numerous other items in our inventory were purchased at auction in Ithaca, NY from the estate of Nell Mondy. Long time GWIS member and friend, Dr. Nell Mondy, passed away Thursday, August 25, 2005 in Ithaca, NY. Mondy was recognized worldwide for her research, which involved the study of plant biochemistry as it related to human nutrition and food, studying factors affecting the nutritive value and quality of potato tubers, a very important staple crop around the world. She studied potato constituents such as ascorbic acid, protein, lipids, minerals, phenols, and glycoalkaloids for the effect of fertilizer components (such as boron, zinc, magnesium, potassium and nitrogen) storage conditions, sprout inhibition, irradiation, processing, and packaging. Other research interests included the study of food safety as influenced by naturally-occurring toxicants such as glycoalkaloids and nitrates. Dr. Mondy's work on behalf of the potato industry resulted in an Honorary Life Membership in the Potato Association of America, the organization's highest honor. Mondy's research at Cornell ranged from determining the availability of iron in frozen vegetables, the effect of sulfur dioxide on living cells, and naturally occurring toxicants in food to the biochemical and nutritional aspects of fresh and processed potatoes. But she also engaged in special projects at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture in Nigeria, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Two of Mondy's well known books are Experimental Food Chemistry, published by AVI Publishing Co., Westport, CT in 1980 and You Never Fail Until You Stop Trying: The Story of a Pioneer Woman Chemist published in 2001 by Dorrance Publishing Co., Pittsburgh, PA. She was a committed humanitarian who spent a great deal of time in Africa, including a 1983-84 stint as a visiting scientist working on the chemical properties of yams and cassava at the Institute of Tropical Agriculture in Nigeria. While there, she introduced soybeans and processing techniques for soy milk and other soy products to a children's home where there was much nutritional deficiency. In 1987 she prepared a proposal on potato marketing that led to the formation of the Agriculture Research Service-National Potato Council (ARS/NPC) National Potato Research Program. The program resulted in millions of dollars in research funds being made available for the study of the quality and use of potatoes. An executive at one potato processing company wrote, Your contributions to the body of potato research literature in the areas of nutrition and quality improvements, particularly in relation to glycoalkaloids and blackspot bruise, will be of lasting value and significance to the potato industry and consumers of potatoes everywhere. Dr. Mondy is in the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY, and is listed in more than two dozen reference books, such as Who's Who in America and Foremost Women in the Twentieth Century. She is the namesake of the Nell I. Mondy Organic Chemistry Laboratory at Ouachita Baptist University, which also sponsors the Nell Mondy Lecture Series that brings experts in chemistry, food science and nutrition to that campus. Mondy also authored or co-authored more than 100 scientific publications. Mondy received her B.S. with honors at Ouachita Baptist University (1943); M.A. at Texas University (1945) and Ph.D. at Cornell (1953). Dr. Mondy received numerous honors. In 1997 she was the first recipient of the Elizabeth Fleming Stier Award, selected by the New York Section of the Institute of Food Technologists. The award recognizes IFT members for their pursuit of humanitarian id. Seller Inventory # 1271626
