Dr. Clemence Lozier (1813-1888)

Dr. Clemence Sophia H. Lozier graduated in medicine from the Syracuse Eclectic College in 1853 and opened a medical practice in New York immediately. She began giving lectures to women on anatomy and physiology, which inspired her to open a medical school. After a long and difficult struggle the physician founded the New York Medical College and Hospital for Women in 1863. Lozier's home was open to leading feminists such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, whose publication, "The Revolution," Lozier sustained financially. Only one of her seven children survived; Abraham Lozier became a physician and his two wives were doctors and graduates of his mother's college.
