Maude Abbott received her medical degree in 1894, and studied pathology in London, Heidelberg, Vienna, Glasgow, and at McGill University in Montreal. Discussing the research that led to her article, Abbott explained, "The pigmentation-cirrhosis was a more extensive affair. As it was the first piece of pathological research I had ever done. Dr. Adami told me to work it over as completely as possible first, and after this was done to make a survey of the literature. I accordingly wrote to Vienna for the full records of the case of which I had the slides, and they very kindly sent me the material from two others, with a paper by Kretz, who had studied also a large number of livers to determine the presence of hemosiderin in conditions other that which we were studying....My article was ready for publishing in December 1899." (MacDermott, Maude Abbott: A Memoir, p 63.
Together with two important association items: Abbott, a pioneer of congenital heart disease wrote to fellow Canadian (and her pupil) who is considered to be Canada's second cardiologist. Segall's biographer explains that shortly after he received his medical degree from McGill University Maude Abbott appointed him assistant curator in the institution's pathological museum. Segall asked pathologist Louis Gross for advice about pursuing postgraduate work in pathology, and Gross advised him to see Maude Abbott. "Segall had thus made a start toward what was to become his medical specialty [cardiology], though he didn't know it at the time. And he was able to work with a woman who was at the time one of Canada's best known scientists. Abbott was not only a world authority on congenital malformations of the heart, but was also one of the first female scientists anywhere to achieve general recognition as a contributor to medical knowledge" (Charles Roland, "Harold Nathan Segall: Cardiologist and Historian," Markham, Ontario, Canada 1995, pp 34-37).
