A Book of Medical Discourses, Rebecca Lee Crumpler

Subject

Rebecca Lee Crumpler, MD, graduated from the New England Female Medical College in 1864. She was the first black woman to earn a medical degree in the United States and the only black woman to graduate from the New England Female Medical College, which was absorbed by Boston University in 1873. No photos survive of Dr. Crumpler, and the only details we know of her life come from the introduction to her book, A Book of Medical Discourses, published in 1883, available digitally: https://archive.org/details/67521160R.nlm.nih.gov/page/n3
