On This Day: Elizabeth Blackwell received medical degree
It was On This Day that Elizabeth Blackwell received her
medical degree from New York’s GenevaCollege. Blackwell, English by birth, went on to found the New York Infirmary for Women and Children. She later returned to England where she became a professor of gynecology. Blackwell received her M.D. in 1849, making her the first woman to receive an M.D. from an American medical school!
