About the author

Mary Edwards Walker, M.D., was the first woman in America to qualify as a surgeon. She was an early and outspoken exponent of what we would now call equity feminism and a lifelong advocate of sociopolitical progress, divorce law reform, freedom of dress, workers' rights, individualism, and temperance. For her battlefield heroism in the Civil War, she was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Eric v.d. Luft, Ph.D., M.L.S., was Historical Collections Assistant at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, twice a Fellow of the Francis C. Wood Institute for the History of Medicine, Curator of Historical Collections at SUNY Upstate Medical University, and editor of The Watermark. He is the author of several articles on the history of women in medicine and nineteenth-century medicine.

Janet Golden, Ph.D., is Emerita Professor of History at Rutgers University. She is the author of numerous books and articles in the history of medicine, the co-editor of the Critical Issues in Health and Medicine book series at Rutgers University Press, and the co-editor of "The Public's Health" blog at Philly.com. Her most recent book is Babies Made Us Modern: How Infants Brought Americans into the Twentieth Century.
