In 1949, the American Medical Women's Association began awarding the Elizabeth Blackwell Medal annually to women physicians, and in 1974, she was commemorated with a U.S. postage stage. Now Google is paying tribute.
“Today’s Doodle is by illustrator Harriet Lee Merrion – who happens to be based in Bristol and regularly cycles past the house where Elizabeth grew up! Her illustration shows Blackwell in the midst of her pioneering practice and celebrates the significant positive impact she had on the lives of people around the world,” Google wrote.
