Emily Van Loon

  • ... my small nephew was out walking with me along Chestnut Street. I stopped to exchange a few words with a friend I met. When he had gone on, my nephew asked: 'Who's that man?' 'A doctor I work with at the hospital,' I explained. 'A doctor!' my nephew exclaimed in genuine surprise; 'he can't be, he's a man!' All of his medical experience to date had been with his aunt and other women doctors.
