The story was written by Dr Kristin Hay, a historian of sex, gender, medicine and oral history, and Tutor of Economic and Social History at the University of Glasgow. The animation was produced and edited by Kirsty Earley, the Digital Heritage and Engagement Officer of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

Elizabeth Adelaide Baker

Description

Photograph courtesy of the family of Dr Baker.

Pictured here is a portrait that represents the life and work of Elizabeth Adelaide Baker as part of the College's "Admitting Women" exhibition.

Elizabeth Adelaide Baker was the first woman to apply for fellowship of the College in 1897. Although she was already a licentiate of the College through the Triple Qualification, her application for fellowship was refused on the grounds of a minor technicality within medical legislation. The College concluded that women were “not eligible among the brethren” of Fellows. While refused, Baker’s attempt at obtaining fellowship represented a bold push for gender equality in medicine.
Baker practiced medicine in many locations, including Greenhill House in Orkney and Lady Gomm Memorial Mission House and Accident Hospital in Rotherhithe.

Pictured here is a portrait that represents the life and work of Anne Louise McIlroy as part of the College's "Admitting Women" exhibition.

Dr Anne Louise Mcllroy applied to become a Fellow of the College in 1910. She studied medicine at the University of Glasgow, and was the first woman to receive the MD with a commendation. In her application for fellowship, she stated that it was “necessary for the holding of teaching posts.” Her application although refused led to the motion being passed in 1911 allowing women to be accepted as Fellows. Despite battling gender inequality, McIlroy was eventually awarded an OBE and then DBE for her services to midwifery.

She worked as a surgeon with the Scottish Women’s Hospital during the First World War. McIlroy was the first woman professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at London University and was a founding Fellow of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists.

Jamini Sen

Description

Image from the archives of the Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta. Courtesy: Sevati Mitra.

Pictured here is a portrait that represents the life and work of Jamini Sen as part of the College's "Admitting Women" exhibition.

Jamini Sen was admitted as the first female Fellow of the College in 1912, passing the fellowship examination as a surgeon. She was unable to hold office in the College, meaning that her privileges as a female Fellow were restricted compared to those of her male counterparts. It would be 11 years before another woman was admitted as a Fellow (Margaret Hogg Grant in 1923).

Sen studied at Calcutta Medical College, obtaining a medical license in 1897. She practiced in Nepal from 1899 until 1909, before receiving a scholarship from the Dufferin Foundation in 1911. This allowed her to travel widely to expand her skills as a surgeon, obtaining a further medical license in Dublin. Her desire to learn and advance medical education is reflected in her words, "I have a lot of responsibilities towards my sisters in my country."

Pictured here is a portrait that represents the life and work of Jessie MacLaren MacGregor as part of the College's "Admitting Women" exhibition.

Dr Jessie MacLaren MacGregor wrote to the College in 1905 asking: ‘First on what grounds women were held to be ineligible for the Fellowship, and, secondly, if their hindrance might possibly be reviewed.’ Her request was refused. MacGregor was one of the first women to be awarded a medical degree from the University of Edinburgh, yet the College refused to acknowledge her status as a qualified doctor, referring to her as ‘Miss’ throughout the discussion.

MacGregor was one of the founders of The Hospice, a maternity hospital for the care of working class women in Edinburgh. She also practiced at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.

Portrait of Kirsty Follett

Description

Pictured here is a portrait of Kirsty Follett, a nurse who has worked in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde region of the NHS for over 30 years. This portrait was captured after a 12 hour shift during the Covid pandemic, showing the effect these conditions had on the staff - mentally and physically draining, skin raw and marked from masks held tight, often exacerbated with sweat, tears and genuine concern for those they were treating.

About the experience, Kirsty said:

"I worked between the intubation team and ICU. The adaptability was commendable that the staff put into ICU. 100% working out with their comfort zone.However the support from colleagues in the same position helped. It was stressful, as never having to deal with the likes we have never seen before.Our patients were so critically ill. The acute sense of upset for families not being there with their loved ones at their greatest time of need will be something that will live with me for a long time."

The portrait was done by Pearl Kinnear, a Glasgow-based artist.

Letter from William Clark to Archibald Young

Description

Letter from William Clark of Uddingston to Professor Archibald Young expressing thanks for his treatment at hospital.

“4 Clydeford Drive, Uddingston, 18/7/39.

Dear Professor Young,

When I read in this morning’s newspaper a remark you made at yesterday’s presentation of your portrait in oils- “One is more sure of today- one can be less sure of tomorrow.” I decided to write to you at once.

How can I find words for the adequate expression of my thanks for the great kindnesses you have shown me? We are told that out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaketh. I have sometimes doubted the literal accuracy of that statement and never more than today. Blame the poverty of my vocabulary but whatever the cause it is certainly not any deficiency in my keen and abiding feeling of gratitude to you. I was sorry that I did not see you again before I left the hospital, but most unfortunately was asked to released duly as Mr Orr would explain.

I have been keeping fairly well, but my feet have been troubling me. Perhaps I was too soon at work and didn’t get an opportunity to rest them enough.

Let me say that while in hospital, I was most contented and received kindness from everyone.

My debt to the hospital I have not yet paid. I have been wondering if there is anything I could give to Ward 19 in your name. I noted that the Ward had no dinner-waggon.
I must give something. If that isn’t suitable, then money shall be sent in honour of one who has been to me a great friend.

I am hoping to visit the hospital on Saturday and then may find out what would be the most acceptable present for the Ward, Prof. Young’s Ward.

I sincerely pray that your health will greatly improve and that you will be spared to us for many years.

I trust that this note has made clear to you the warmth of my deepest gratitude.

Yours sincerely,

William Clark”

Dear Sir,
I was a patient under you in Ward 15 for 6 weeks in the spring of this year, and underwent an operation for the removal of the little toe on my right foot, owing to long standing skin disease.
When able to go home, you on two occasions asked me to come back, and let you see me in about six months’ time. So if you let me know any day that would suit you either this week or next. I would be very pleased to come up.
I may say that the foot healed up beautifully, and I have been back at my work since the end of June, and have enjoyed many good long walks without any ill effects. And I feel I cannot express how grateful I am, for all the benefit I have got while under your care.

Yours sincerely,

"13 Bath Street, March 5 1872.

James W. Allan.

My dear Friend,
I have received with much pleasure the news, both of the telegram and the letter; each in this season; announcing your safe arrival at the proximal extremity of your China journey. And I will weary till I have a telegram from Liverpool intimating your safe return.
I cannot describe to you, the feeling of that walk home on Sunday night. There seemed to be a wonderful lack of words, and a silent confusion pervaded all of us, as we tottered slowly down the streets, until, last of all, the silence began to be quite unbearable, and each tried to speak: but, the broken, semi-spasmodic sentences, which were uttered, only showed, too plainly, that our minds were on a very different subject from our tongues. Sutherland, remained quietly on the sofa, for a long time, and at last gave vent to a queer expression, emanating from the depths of the trachea, then a faint smile, lit for a moment his swarthy face, but only to make the dull eyes, still more dull and dismal, as if the lower part of his face was masking the upper: and shifting himself uneasily on the sofa he said “Hell man! Jamie is really away to China.” “It’s queer isn’t it.” And after a short interval, all of us, by one desire, wanted to separate. We wanted to be alone. So Archie and I drawing closer to each other than usual & holding each others arms firmer than our want, passed slowly down to the bridge, and for a little time looked sadly into the dark flowing river, which reflected the flickering lights and with promises to meet soon, grasped hands and departed; and the sorrow in Archie’s eye I still see: calm and deep.
There is a sort of dread hanging over me, which I hope will soon vanish. We may never meet again, here. You or I may leave this earth ere from ____, one sent into the past: but if it should be, we will know: whoever goes, that it will only be to participate the sooner in the mysteries of the eternal. One thing will never be shaken [:] our love for each other.

May God be with us.
