Project SummaryThis project documents perspectives and memories of women who graduated from the University of Kentucky, College of Medicine during the 1960's and early 1970's, when women doctors comprised only six to ten percent of the physician workforce. These women were trailblazers who successfully pursued professional careers, defined their own domestic roles, and brought a new dimension to medicine. They became leaders of medical associations, chairs of academic departments, discoverers and scientists, and givers of compassionate and innovative care in their communities. The first seven interviews were completed for a dissertation study and transcription was funded in part by the Arvle Turner Research Fund. The next 18 interviews were funded in part by the Kentucky Oral History Commission. Additional interviews are anticipated.
