  • Blueberry Commons Room, OceanView, 3 Marion Way

Falmouth Historical Society invites you to attend their annual meeting
featuring guest author Annette Vance Dorey  who will discuss her book “Miss Dr. Lucy” and Maine’s Pioneering Female Physicians, 1850s-1920 and Maine’s First Female Doctors: Easy Reader Edition.

Female doctors came from and settled in Maine as early as the 1850s.
These forgotten healers were either Maine natives who traveled far and wide to study medicine or women from other states who chose to establish their medical practice in Maine. Many were activists for women’s equal rights; many held office in civic and medical organizations.  Some gave up careers; they chose marriage and motherhood and walked away from a medical career. Their stories tell about medical schools that opened only for
women, despite the challenge to be accepted by men in medicine.

Annual Meeting begins at 6 pm
Refreshments at 6:45 pm
Featured speaker at 7 pm
