MacLEOD, Enid Johnson. Petticoat Doctors : The First Forty Years of Women in Medicine at Dalhousie University. With an Introduction by Barbara Hinds. Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia, Canada / (Porters Lake) : Pottersfield Press, (1990). First Printing. Pp (4),5-128. Illustrated with 56 b&w photos in the text. 8vo, pink photo-illustrated cardcovers.

Enid Johnson Macleod, n้e Gladys Enid Johnson (b. 1909, Jacksonville, New Brunswick - d. May 27, 2001).

"By 1989, 566 women had graduated from the Dalhousie Medical School. This is the story of the first 46 women who became doctors during the first forty years, from 1894 to 1933. Historically, medicine was practised primarily by men. Yet in the Victorian era, with its social climate of male dominance, prejudice and obsessive modesty, a few women dared to seek entry into this exclusive male dominion. In Nova Scotia, it was not until 1881 that Dalhousie University allowed women to be admitted to the study of medicine. The first to graduate, 13 years later, was the "fiery, determined" Annie Isabella Hamilton [of Brookfield, Colchester County]. Petticoat Doctors reveals the lives of Annie and the daring women who followed in her footsteps." - rear cover.
