DREAM WITHIN HER HAND: The Life of Cornelia Chase Brant, MD

A biography that is the loving chronicle of a woman's life, a pioneer-career woman of boundless energy and ambition. Motherless, she was raised by Quaker aunts; she knew penny pinching for living and education, she hated the ignorance of illnesses and the ignominy of having to consult men doctors; she married the man she loved and bore three children. Then at 34, she began to study medicine, graduated with honors, practiced and became Dean of New York Medical College and Hospital for Women. She achieves all her ambitions -- then is forced to retire because of a broken hip. Another doctor's book -- but a good one for women readers, especially.
