Death: Aft 1920
Doctor of Medicine, 1889, Chicago Women's Medical College. She went to Burma to the Dufferin Hospital in 1889 under the auspices of the "Women's Board", American Baptist Missions.

Alumnae of the Woman's Medical College of Chicago, 1859-1896.

"Rangoon, Burmah. On first going out to India she took charge of the Dufferin Hospital founded by Lady Duffrin, of England, to aid the women of Burma. For two years she worked in this hospital, when she returned to America, remaining about a year. She now has a large house, which she uses as a residence and private hospital. Her work is chiefly among Mohammedan women, and her practice has done much in allaying the prejudice of the resident English against the medical woman, and especially American medical women. She does a considerable charity practice, going out at night or through the almost unbearable heat of the day to native huts, often without any compensation. Her practice is general, among women and children."
