In this Oct. 29, 2013, photo taken in Evanston, Ill., Scott Krafft, left, curator of the Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections, and manuscript librarian Benn Joseph display a painting of a dead Spanish boy from the 1,600s. The portrait is one of the artifacts from the “Death Collection”- an archive of death-related oddities once owned by horror novelist and screenwriter Michael McEachern McDowell that have been purchased by Northwestern University.
