While at Berkeley, Nora wrote her undergraduate thesis on the historical and artistic significance of the neo-impressionist, or pointillist, movement in turn-of-the-century Europe. She also wrote a guide to the research of artworks, which was published by the Library, University of California, Berkeley and may be accessed online: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/ARTH/researchartwork.html.
