- A. Myra Keen (1905-1986), an expert on the systematics of Cenozoic marine mollusks, was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She graduated from Colorado College in 1930, received her M.A. at Stanford in 1931, and her Ph.D. in psychology at the University of California at Berkeley in 1934. While working on her Ph.D., Keen volunteered to help Ida Shepard Oldroyd with her work on shells at Stanford University. Unable to find employment in her field when she graduated, Keen continued her volunteer work on the shell collection at Stanford. She soon came under the influence of Hubert Gregory Schenck, a paleontologist, who encouraged her to concentrate on malacology. Keen spent the remainder of her career at the University.
- Keen was appointed Curator of Paleontology in 1936, Assistant Professor of Paleontology in 1954, Curator of Malacology in 1957, and Associate Professor and Professor of Paleontology in 1960 and 1965, respectively. In 1970 Keen became Professor of Paleontology Emeritus and Curator of Malacology Emeritus. Keen retired from Stanford in 1972, but continued her scholarship and interest in the work of her students and colleagues until her death.
- Keen's specialty was Tertiary and recent molluscan faunas. As part of her research, Keen undertook extensive field work along the coast of California, traveling as far south as Peru. Her best known work, published in 1958, was The Shells of Tropical West America: Marine Mollusks from Lower California To Colombia.
- Myra Keen was active in many professional societies and served as President of the American Malacological Union, 1948. She was one of the chief organizers of the Pacific Division of the American Malacological Union in 1948 and became its Chairman in 1964. In 1949 Keen was made Chairman of the Pacific Coast Section of the Paleontological Society and became a Fellow of the Society the same year. Keen was elected President of the Western Society of Malacologists in 1970 and was Chairman of the Committee on Nomenclature of the Society of Systematic Zoology. Keen was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1964 and, in 1979, was the first woman to receive the Fellows' Medal of the California Academy of Sciences. On his visit to the United States in 1975, Emperor Hirohito of Japan, a noted student of shells, met with Keen.
- This record unit documents the professional career of Keen and also includes information about her personal interests. Documentation about Keen's professional work includes correspondence with colleagues and amateur shell collectors regarding research and identification of specimens, activities as a professor at Stanford, involvement with professional scientific organizations, and requests for her to become editor of numerous scientific journals. Of importance is Keen's correspondence regarding her involvement with the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1943-1983; Joint Committee on Zoological Nomenclature for Paleontology in America, 1945-1963; and her work with the Society of Systematic Zoology, Nomenclature Committee, 1953-1969. Also documenting Keen's professional work are her diaries and notebooks, which contain information about her shell collecting; research expeditions; and trip to the British Museum (Natural History) in 1967. There are drafts of published papers on mollusks; bound notes on nomenclature; anatomical drawings; specimen photographs and slides; photographs of scientists, including S. Stillman Berry and Henry A. Pilsbry; and group photographs of the American Malacologists Union, Pacific Division, and the Western Society of Malacologists.
- These papers also include private correspondence with family members and friends documenting her interests in religion (in particular her relationship with the Religious Society of Friends), philosophy, current affairs, health, financial matters, and her concern over the death of her mother; correspondence and scrapbooks concerning Keen's visit from Emperor Hirohito of Japan; family photograph albums, dating back to around 1870; school annuals from Colorado Springs High School, 1923, and Colorado College, 1928-1931; awards, honors, and ribbons; an autobiography; and an oral history interview by Eugene V. Coan in September 1983.

Angeline Myra Keen (1905-1986) was a long-time member of the faculty of Stanford University. Although her academic training was in psychology, she became an expert in paleontology, and more particularly in malacology, the branch of zoology that deals with mollusks. She produced a large body of popular and scholarly work, taught many students, and was widely respected in her field.
After graduating from Colorado College (1930), Myra Keen and her mother moved to Stanford, where Keen took her M.A. in 1931, and then to the University of California at Berkeley, from which she received her doctorate in 1934. There were few jobs available in her field, so she took a volunteer job working on shells at Stanford. There the paleontologist Hubert Gregory Schenck encouraged her to study in that field, especially malacology. Keen spent the remainder of her career at Stanford. She belatedly became an assistant professor in 1954, an associate professor in 1960 and, in 1965, a full professor. At that time she was one of only three women so employed in the scientific disciplines at Stanford.
Keen undertook extensive field work on the west coast of America, as far south as Peru. She published her finest work in 1958, The Shells of Tropical West America: Marine Mollusks from Lower California to Colombia.
Professor Keen was active in many professional societies. She served as president of the American Malacological Union in 1948; in 1949, as a member of the Paleontological Society and chairman of the Pacific Coast Section. In 1970 she was chairman of the Western Malacological Union. She also served as chairman of the Committee on Nomenclature of the Society of Systematic Zoology.
Myra Keen received many honors in recognition of her accomplishments. She was a member of Phi Beta Kappa; was made a Guggenheim Fellow in 1964; and, in 1979, became the first woman to receive the Fellows' Medal of the California Academy of Sciences. In 1975 Emperor Hirohito of Japan, himself a noted student of shells, asked to meet Keen on his visit to the United States, and they discussed the molluscan faunas of Japan and northwestern North America.
Professor Keen was an individual of quiet temper but strong convictions. A devoted pacifist, she joined the Religious Society of Friends in 1964. She retired from Stanford in 1972 but continued her interest in scholarship and in the work of her students and colleagues until her death.
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
This collection documents the professional career of Angeline Myra Keen, mostly her years on the faculty of Stanford University. A paleontologist and malacologist, Keen's interests were diverse and included marine molluscan Cenozoic paleontology; neontology and zoogeography of western North America; and, especially, problems in systematics and nomenclature. Keen was also active in professional organizations and wrote extensively.
The greater part of the collection consists of professional correspondence and writing, and records of field trips undertaken to pursue her research. The collection also contains family correspondence and other material documenting her childhood, education, and genealogical interests, as well as philosophical and religious reflections on the human condition.
