BECKER MEDICAL LIBRARY, WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY Beyond TLC: Missouri Women in the Health Science Professions
The Bernard Becker Medical Library presents "Beyond TLC: Missouri Women in the Health Science Professions" to profile and celebrate some of the pioneering and prominent Missouri women in the health science professions during the 20th century. The site both profiles individual women and explores women's contributions to the development of health science professions such as nursing, occupational and physical therapy, and medical social work.
The information provided is drawn primarily from the Washington University School of Medicine Archives, held in the Bernard Becker Medical Library. However, effort has been made to expand the scope of this project beyond the confines of Washington University and St. Louis.
The visual, personal and institutional collections held in the Becker Medical Library provide both primary and secondary source materials for this project. Representative visual images and documents have been selected not only to illustrate the text but also to provide additional insights into the lives and times of the women profiled. Please note, the Becker Medical Library presents these items as part of the record of the past. These primary historical images and documents may reflect the attitudes, perspectives, and beliefs of different times. The Becker Medical Library does not endorse the views expressed in these items, which may contain materials offensive to some users.
Images for this digital project were selected from over 50 of the Becker Medical Library's visual collections. Items were selected from institutional visual collections, such as St. Louis Children's Hospital, Jewish Hospital of St. Louis, and the Washington University School of Nursing. Personal collections utilized include Mildred Trotter Photographs and Certificates, the Carl F. Cori and Gerty T. Cori Visual Collection, and the Helen Graham collection.
