"Dr. Rosalie Slaughter Morton was the first woman faculty member at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons and one of the first at New York Polyclinic Hospital and Post-Graduate Medical School. She lobbied for the equal recognition of male and female physicians in war service, and served in European field hospitals during World War I. Rosalie Slaughter grew up in Lynchburg, Virginia, in a wealthy family with long-standing residency in the Old Dominion. After attending private schools in Lynchburg, she entered a finishing school in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1937 Dr. Morton noted in her autobiography that, "My entire upbringing and education had been designed, as it was for all Southern girls, to make me a capable wife—not to imbue me with a desire for a career." As the daughter of a respected banker and attorney from a prominent southern family, She was expected to marry and raise a family rather than pursuing a career. Yet by the end of her life, Dr. Morton had practiced medicine on three continents, visited all but the most remote locations in the world, and served as a physician in the field hospitals of World War I. But when it came time for her to fulfill social expectations to marry, Slaughter chose a different path." (Changing the face of Medicine website)
