On January 23, 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman in America to receive a medical degree! She graduated from the Medical Institution of Geneva, N.Y.
I don't want to be a doctor, but I sure am glad lots of women do. :)

What is History With Hilary?
Every day, I take a self-portrait based on that day in history! The plan is to eventually make a book and/or calendar!
Select prints from my History With Hilary are for sale. Proceeds help to support the project, which is getting a little pricey! View them at Etsy!
I'm also accepting donations, including costumes, wigs, fabric, and props! Please email me at email@example.com.
