A book published 11 years after that said this of Banks and other early women physicians: “It is only a few years since the idea of a woman entering the profession of medicine and graduating as a doctor was something so quixotic, if not actually absurd, that any girl who alluded to such a vocation was reasoned with and talked to as if she had contemplated moral suicide.” Banks and her counterparts were well aware that they were breaking new ground, though they did so in a spirit that was more pragmatic than “quixotic.” (Source: medicineatmichigan.org Banks was born in Walled Lake, Michigan, where her family had made their home a station on the Underground Railroad. She worked as a school teacher for several years, beginning at age 17, before entering medical school. She graduated in 1873, the same year as Emma Call, M.D., and two years after Amanda Sanford, M.D., the school’s first woman graduate. Banks practiced in Ypsilanti for a short time, then became the resident physician at the Women’s Hospital and Foundling’s Home in Detroit. (Source:medicineatmichigan.org))
