ANDERSON, ELIZABETH GARRETT. 1836-1917.

Autograph Letter Signed, to Miss Fox, 1 p, London, June 3, 1878. Anderson writes on a card that she will be glad to see the recipient the following day. Very slight fading.
WITH: Final page of an Autograph Letter Signed in which Garrett writes, "I see there is a train which reaches London about 7 wh[ich] will suit me well. Believe me, Dear Mr. Arnold. Yours very truly, Elizabeth Garrett." Minor spotting.

Elizabeth Garrett Anderson married George S. Anderson in 1871. Garrett had met Elizabeth Blackwell in 1859. "Blackwell was the only woman on the General Medical Council's new medical register. Inspired by Blackwell and supported by her father, she obtained a medical education and a registrable medical qualification. Barred from admission as a medical student to a university or London teaching hospital, she completed the required courses as a private student of teachers of recognized medical schools, and passed the examination for the License of the Society of Apothecaries. In 1865 her name was entered on the medical register, the second woman and the first British-trained woman; no more women were added until 1876. In 1870 she became the first woman to obtain an MD from the University of Paris. Admitted to the British Medical Association in 1873, she remained the only woman member for nineteen years" (DMB 1:113-114).
