Subject:
Notable People: Women , Physicians, Women

Description:
Based on a Ph.D. thesis, this exhibit provides an illustrated narrative about women who graduated from Cleveland Medical College in the 1850s. Women "were banned because of the supposed frailty of their gender from attending the medical schools established in this country after the 1770s. ... Another path followed by women who desired to become doctors was to attend a separate school for women." From Dittrick Medical History Center, Case Western Reserve University.
