John J. Trause


Remember that my name is John J. Trause. The middle initial is essential. Since "John Trause" is also a main character of Paul Auster's novel Oracle Night (2003), we are often confused. I have tried to sift out the links under the name "John Trause" that pertain to me rather than the fictional character.

Museum Of Menstruation Website has a reference to me, but not by name, on its very BUSY website for one of my contributions under "Words and expressions for menstruation around the world" Go to "America (United States of)" Scroll down to the letter M.


"M the contributor, formerly a librarian at a well-known New York museum who visited the physical MUM shortly after it opened, writes, "When my cousin Maryann was in high school 20 years ago and a girl couldn't use the pool which was required during gym class because she was having her period, she would simply say 'M' quietly to the gym teacher who would excuse her from going in the pool. The 'M' obviously meant 'I am menstruating.' My cousin and her friends would use 'M' as a code even outside of the gym circumstance." (August 2002)"


This was provided to me by my cousin Maryann Petrocelli who attended Hackensack High School.
