In 2002 the North Carolina Society of Radiologic Technologists established a scholarship to honor the memory of Jane Cox Hendrix, RN, RT (R) who passed away. The scholarship aims to aid either graduate or undergraduate radiologic technology students. Jane Cox received her x-ray training at Duke University Medical Center and was active in the NCSRT, Inc. as President of the Society and ASRT Counselor to North Carolina. She was employed by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro to teach x-ray physics in the late 40's. While there she experimented with x-raying flowers using a superficial therapy machine. Her Shadowgraphs of Flowers won national recognition for an individual technical exhibit at the 1949 ASRT meeting in San Francisco. Her technique was printed in the 1953 ASRT Journal. In addition, her work was exhibited at the State Art Gallery in Raleigh and two of her prints went on a world tour with the International Photography-in-Science Salon exhibit.
Jane was honored with Honorary membership in the NCSRT, Inc., and in 1983 presented the Reeves-Rousseau lecture. When Jane married William P. Hendrix she retired from professional life and left a legacy of beauty for all to enjoy. The NCSRT, Inc. has commissioned reprints of her flowers to be sold to fund the scholarship. Prints will be sold on-site at the NCSRT Inc. Annual conference and selected One Day Seminars. You may also purchase prints via the order form found on this site. Cash donations are greatly appreciated.
