Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania clipping scrapbooks

Date created 1869-01-01 – 1923-01-01
Creators Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania
Abstract These clippings allow researchers to analyze how discourses about women doctors changed between 1869 and 1923, as well as how these perceptions were related to national and international developments. Clippings are less rich, although still helpful, in documenting how women physicians thought of themselves. Women doctors regularly responded to opposition, and students occasionally took action to take control of their own education. Researchers should keep in mind that these scrapbooks were created by WMCP personnel, which makes tracking change over time difficult (collecting patterns may have changed).
