Program Oct. 14, Mary Cunningham Body Snatcher

Joyce Lovins Browning will portray Mary Cunningham who, in the 1870s, with her 
husband William were in the profitable business of aiding many young Cincinnati 
medical students in their studies by providing them with cadavers upon which to 
examine. They were grave-robbing body snatchers! The Irish born Mary was a 
fun-loving woman that liked her whiskey and was rough around the edges. At the 
time you “see” Mary her beloved husband, William, known as the “Ghoul of 
Cincinnati,” had passed away. She will enlighten you of the fine arts of 
bodysnatching, for which there was a very lucrative market in Cincinnati in the 
early and mid-19th century.  Joyce Lovins Browning worked for Great Parks of 
Hamilton County for more than 20 years as the Naturalist Coordinator retiring 
in May of 2018.  She has been performing Living History for more than 17 years.
