The Memory Palace

Episode 132 (Ida Lewis)

The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia.


  • We hear Waltz from the score to Angels & Insects.

  • Movements IV and II from David Liptak’s Serenade for Alto Sax and Strings.

  • A bit of Violin Solo no. 1 from Peter Broderick.

  • Some of Zucht 2 from Machienfabrik.

  • A bit of Origami Tulips from Lullatone.

  • Unseen Forces from Justin Walter.

  • Midnight Moon from Annalisa Tornfelt and Gideon Freudman

  • Ida Lupino from Paul Bley’s Changes album from 1965.

  • And Lost Fur (Reprise) from the score to Where the Wild Things Are.


  • Many of my favorite things I read for this piece were contemporary newspaper tributes upon her death in 1911. They’re easy to find.

  • By far the most useful thing I read was Lenore Skomal’s *The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter: The Remarkable True Story of American Heroine, Ida Lewis. *It’s very well researched and highly readable.
