Excerpt from Mary Putnam Jacobi, M.D., A Pathfinder in Medicine: With Selections From Her Writings and a Complete Bibliography
The Women's Medical Association of New York City, desires to perpetuate the memory of the work done by one of its founders, one of the great pioneer women in medicine. She opened the doors of a great university that women might equally with men obtain a scientific medical education. All her life she was a zealous worker for this advancement of the medical education of women. To continue this, her work, the Association has founded the Mary Putnam Jacobi Memorial Fellowship, thus far awarded four times, to increase the medical knowledge of the recipients. The Association in this volume has collected some of her medical writings, illustrating her studies on the medical problems of her day. With her writings as with her other medi cal work, she was never satisfied. There was always a better than her best, a higher than her highest to be striven for; and ii. This striving she was not inﬂuenced by personal ambition, but by the higher object - the truth to be attained.
