Louisa Garrett Anderson
Birth: Jul. 28, 1873
Death: Nov. 15, 1943

Medical Pioneer, Social Reformer. She was educated at St. Leonard's School, St. Andrews, and at the London School of Medicine for Women (located at the Royal Free Hospital). Her father was a shipowner; her mother was the first woman to qualify as a doctor, and the first woman to be elected Mayor in Great Britian (of Aldeburgh, where she is buried). Until the outbreak of the First World War, when she went to France with the Women's Hospital Corps, Louisa was engaged in private practice and hospital work. In 1912, she was imprisoned, briefly, for her suffragette activities. In addition to many articles of medicine, she wrote a biography of her mother, in 1939. She never married and is buried with her friend and colleague, Flora Murray near to her home at Paul End, in Penn. The inscription on her tomb reads "Louisa Garrett Anderson, C.B.E., M.D., Chief Surgeon Women's Hospital Corps 1914-1919. Daughter of James George Skelton Anderson and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson of Aldeburgh, Suffolk. Born 28th. July 1873, died November 15th. 1943. We have been gloriously happy." (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
