The future Dr. Astrablue is a fan of Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, who was the first woman to earn an M.D. from a U.S. medical school. Astra wanted to see the good doctor mentioned in a list, but I ran across this portrait while I was researching her and decided to use it for one of my Sunday art posts.
By the way, I forgot to post a poem yesterday, so I posted one this evening and backdated it. You can read it here: Archibald MacLeish, Baccalaureate
