From the Publisher
As reported by a fellow student, when Elizabeth Blackwell arrived at her first class in medical school in 1847, "A hush fell over the class as if each member had been stricken with paralysis...A death-like stillness prevailed during the lecture." Adele Glimm tells the fascinating story of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female physician in the United States. Blazing trails and overcoming prejudice throughout her education and professional life, denied access to hospitals, Blackwell opened the New York Infirmary for Women and Children and, in 1868, the Women's Medical College, the first of its kind in history.
