The story of Mayo Clinic begins on the Minnesota prairie following a devastating tornado in 1883. It also begins with the women who joined the growing practice as physicians, as laboratory researchers, as developers of radium therapy and cancer treatments, and as innovators in virtually all aspects of patient care, education, and research. While these women contributed to the clinic’s origins and success, their roles have not been widely celebrated—until now.

Virginia Wright-Peterson will explore these women’s stories in detail that led to the creation of her first book.  Copies of her book, The Women of Mayo Clinic, are available in the History Center gift shop or via the online store.
