Wednesday's Portrait: Dorothy Mabel Reed

Today's Portrait: 
Dr. Dorothy Mabel Mendenhall ('nee: Reed)
b. 22 Sep 1874 Columbus, Ohio
d. 31 Jul 1964 Madison, Wisconsin

I love this picture because of the woman behind it! Dorothy was a wife, mother and a doctor! She proved that Hodgkin's disease was not a form of tuberculosis and discovered the blood cell disorder characteristic of the disease. What a profound life for a woman of her time!!!
