Google Doodle Celebrates Another Legacy Birthday

Anandi Gopal Joshi Google Doodle

With its March 31 banner recognizing the 153rd birthday of Anandi Gopal Joshi, Google gave the Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania a second chapter in its most recent claims to fame (see Pulse Winter issue). Joshi came to WMC from India and, after graduating in 1886, returned as her country’s first female physician. Her life was cut short by tuberculosis just a few years later. Before she died, however, she served as physician-in-charge of the female ward of a hospital in Kolhapur and planned to open a medical college for women, like her alma mater. At left is the building on Arch Street that was the first home of Homeopathic Medical College, in 1848, and Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, in 1850.
