Person Female Born 18/10/1874 Died 18/10/1933
Doctor and psychologist. Born 1 Jeffrey's Road, Clapham Road. Set up a private practice in Bayswater with her lifelong partner and friend Dr Elizabeth Honor Bone. First woman to be elected to the Council of the British Medical Association. Second woman to be appointed to a resident post at the Royal Free Hospital. A feminist, she promoted equal opportunities in the medical profession and was president of the Medical Women's Federation 1926-8. She also promoted enlightened sex education. Never married. Died at home, 21 North Gate. The British Medical Journal of 28th October 1933 carries her obituary and a 1939 Christine Murrell Memorial Lecture takes her as its subject. Since we found those two references the BMJ have introduced a log-in wall, possibly a pay-wall so we can't link to them.
