Geneva Medical College (SUNY) *****SOLD*****


Model # OTH223

Maker: The Family Magazine
Antique uncolored print showing the Geneva Medical College. It is famous for being one of several places where Elizabeth Blackwell studied medicine and became the first woman in the United States to receive a medical degree. Her acceptance was a near-accident. The dean and faculty, usually responsible for evaluating an applicant for matriculation, were not able to make a decision due to the special nature of Blackwell's case. They put the issue up to vote by the 150 male students of the class with the stipulation that if one student objected, Blackwell would be turned away. The young men voted unanimously to accept her. After changing hands several times, this building was last purchased by the State University of New York (SUNY) and is currently known as SUNY Upstate Medical University. From the Family Magazine, published in either 1839 or 1843 (there is some ambiguity as to which date is correct). Very good antique condition with light toning. Text from reverse side visible.
