Dr. Equi at the Library

Dr. Equi was part of Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America's Women Physicians, an exhibit that was on display this summer at the Central Library in Portland. The panel about Dr. Equi was produced locally by the History Of Medicine Library at OHSU (and was partly based on Michael's research). Changing the Face of Medicine, which has been traveled around the country, came about through collaboration among a bevy of national organizations.

Two-part series on Equi in The Oregonian

Today in the Sunday Oregonian, the local historian John Terry recounts an episode of Marie Equi's life story: when she came to the defense of her friend by taking a horsewhip to a Baptist minister in the streets of The Dalles, OR.

In presenting the story, Terry cites Michael's work, including a detailed description of the terrain where the two young women made their homestead starting in 1892.

Today's column was titled Marie Equi: Courageous and Unconventional. In next week's paper, Terry will present part 2 of the series about Equi, entitled Birth of a Firebrand.
