Women In White: Women Physicians Oral History Project

University of Kentucky Special Collections Research Center

The Nunn Center recently made the Women in White: Women Physicians Oral History Project

available online. This project documents perspectives and memories of women who graduated from the University of Kentucky, College of Medicine during the 1960’s and early 1970’s, when women doctors comprised only six to ten percent of the physician workforce. These women were trailblazers who successfully pursued professional careers, defined their own domestic roles, and brought a new dimension to medicine. They became leaders of medical associations, chairs of academic departments, discoverers and scientists, and givers of compassionate and innovative care in their communities. Interviews were conducted by Dr. Karen Clancy.

The interviews are searchable using the Nunn Center’s powerful OHMS viewer, making it easy to search and listen to these interviews online. Access the interviews here.
