An Indian woman, a Japanese woman, and a Syrian woman, all training to be doctors at Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia, 1880s. (Image courtesy Legacy Center, Drexel University College of Medicine Archives, Philadelphia, PA. Image #p0103) (x)

The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly.  Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph. 
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.

Wonderful to get further sources.

pencilcat:

My first challenge, Improvement Hell, was a way to inspire people to draw different things different ways, drawing outside their comfort zone, and most of all to draw every day. I had a few people ask for a follow up. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the sequel: Draw All The Things

Each day…

Grace’s wedding dress was the crowning achievement of Helen Rose’s career, and the most expensive garment she ever designed. The dress, valued at more than $7,200 at the time, had been worked on feverishly in top secret for six week by a platoon of three dozen seamstresses. Suitably feminine and elegant, it was an ivory high-necked, long-sleeved gown with a fitted bodice with an overlay of 125-year-old rose point lace. The cut of the gown accentuated Grace’s tiny waist; its voluminous bell skirt of silk taffeta, peau de soie, tulle, and lace billowed with hundreds of yards of fabric. The circular veil added ninety more yards of tulle, highlighted with seed pearls and affixed to a small fitted headpiece.
