She died in 1954. Minnie Watson Kamm had a meteoric parasitological career, exploiting the strengths of gregarine diversity by focusing her own work on the organizational weaknesses of the system. She is recognized by protozoologists as one of the most important apicomplexan systematists of the twentieth century. Despite her own scientific importance and her marriage to one of the seminal American biochemists of the twentieth century, curiously, no photograph of Minnie Watson Kamm is known to exist.
