pickled brains

While doing some research for work today, I stumbled across this interesting information. Sadly, the collection is not actually online.

The Cornell Brain Collection
Seventy human brains preserved in glass jars, including 14 brains of prominent people and 12 brains of less known or infamous people. Believed to be the first collection of its kind in the United States.
I want to know the names of the people whose brains are pickled and on display — especially the infamous ones.
