Women Physicians: 1850s-1970sThis collection consists of correspondence, scrapbooks, clippings, college records, images, diaries, publications and ephemera documenting the history of women physicians beginning with the first medical school for women, Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania (WMCP). Founded in 1850, WMCP trained thousands of women physicians who practiced in all parts of the world, and provided rare opportunities for women to teach, practice, perform research and manage a medical school. WMCP was also a long time refuge for women students and faculty who faced quotas and discrimination elsewhere.

The materials are divided into five subject areas:

  • The early years of the college, 1850-1870
  • Student life, academic life and student culture, 1870-1920
  • Racial and ethnic diversity among women physicians, 1867 to 1960
  • Missionary and public health work, at home and abroad, 1890-1960
  • Medical women in the military, 1863-1945

Browse the materials by any of the subject areas or use the browse functions in the horizontal navigation bar.

A proposito dell'autore

Laureata con lode in Storia presso l’Università Ca' Foscari di Venezia con una tesi sulla trasformazione delle istituzioni altomedievali attraverso i documenti privati, ho di seguito conseguita la laurea magistrale in Archivistica e biblioteconomia con una tesi sulle biblioteche digitali per gli studi medievistici. Da quegli studi e quelle letture nasce il progetto di condivisione delle risorse disponibili in rete per gli studi storici.
