Dr Sarah Loguen Frasier
Birth: Jan. 29, 1850
Syracuse
Onondaga County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 9, 1933, USA

Medical Pioneer. Pioneering doctor in the field of medicine and one of the first African-American female doctors in America. She was born in Syracuse, New York, the fifth of five children of abolitionist and religious leader Rev. James Loguen and his wife Caroline. Frasier later studied to become a doctor, she was admitted to the Syracuse University College of Medicine in October of 1873. She received her M.D. in the Spring of 1876. In September of that same year Frasier began her internship at Woman's Hospital of Philadelphia. Her warm manner endeared her to the children in the hospital wards, who called her "Miss Doc." Besides pediatric and obstepedtric cases, she also frequently encountered nervous or mental patients on her rounds. In the Fall of 1878, she moved to Boston, Mass to fill a six-month vancancy in an internship at the New England Hospital for Women and Children. In the Summer of 1879, she moved to Washington, D.C. to live with her sister Ameilia and an aunt. There Frasier opened an office for private medical practice and soon made the acquaintence of Charles Alexander Frasier, a pharmacist whom she later married in Syracuse on September 19, 1882. The union produced one daughter. In 1911, sometime after her husbands death, Frasier bought a house where she lived the rest of her life. In the 1920's she developed Kidney Disease and Alzheimers. Dr. Frasier died peacefully at her home in her daughters arms on April 9, 1933 and was buried in Lincoln Cemetery in Washington, D.C. (bio by: Curtis Jackson)
