I often find myself going from one book to another, as I find references to interesting people and topics. Thus I found myself looking up Elizabeth Blackwell -- the first woman doctor in the United States. She was born on February 3, 1821, in Bristol, England, and came to the United States as a young girl later becoming the first woman to receive her M.D., overcoming many social obstacles in the United States. She created a medical school for women in the late 1860's. I am rather surprised that more has not been heard about Elizabeth Blackwell during the women's movement.
Eventually, she returned to England and set up a private practice. (Next is a practice script in Italian . . . grammar corrections are welcome.)
