The City: Philadelphia #9


Original Caption:

Philadelphia -- Once an exclusively male province, the profession of healing is being invaded by increasing numbers of women. "Lady Doctors" are no longer a novelty and some women already have become outstanding medicos. Here you see advanced students at the Women's Medical College lining the operating room and balcony to watch Dr. Chloe Fry, resident surgeon in Gynecology perform an operation. Enrollment at the college has risen 33% in the past few years, showing an increase by women in medicine throughout the country. (1946)
