Biography/HistoryLucile St. Hoyme (1924-2001), worked forty years with the Smithsonian Institute starting as an assistant clerk, and ending as Curator Emeritus of the Division of Physical Anthropology. She attended George Washington University and obtained a BS in zoology and MS in biology. In 1957 she received a National Science Foundation grant to study at Oxford University. While there she researched her family genealogy and discoved that her family name was orginally St. Hoyme, and that the "St." had been dropped when her family came to the United States, thus upon her return home, she legally changed her surname to St. Hoyme.
