cz-242-stastnyTom Weber’s third blog post about “Courtship” (October 31, 2014) offers a photo of Dr. Olga Sadilek Stastny, the pioneering Nebraska physician who helped change young Dr. Joe’s ideas about women in medicine. In New Orleans, Dr. Alice and her friends enjoyed the mentorship of older women who trained at Tulane’s medical school. Alice Baker, Weber writes, successfully bridged two worlds, retaining feminine traits but bringing them into the decidedly masculine world of medicine. Dr. Stasny–renowned for her work abroad during and after World War I–helped pave the way.
