This Oct. 29, 2013 photo taken in Evanston, Ill., shows manuscript librarian Benn Joseph, of the Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections, holding a mortician's chalk make-up kit. The kit is just one of the artifacts from the “Death Collection” - an archive of death-related oddities once owned by horror novelist and screenwriter Michael McEachern McDowell purchased by Northwestern University.
