Gladys and Mary - Science & Siamese

 

Police in Tokyo, Japan, banned a protracted exhibition of the Twins pictures here in April, 1953.  They said exhibition of Gladys and Mary McCarther, then 4, of Los Angeles, Calif., would violate Japan's child welfare laws.  Not too long ago Siamese Twins were objects of curiosity.  The term "Siamese Twin" itself stems from the discovery of the birth of two such male individuals in Siam in 1811.  When grown, the twins, Eng and Chang, toured the world, exhibiting themselves to the curious.
