Parlor Chat with Dr. Frances Dickinson

Meet Dr. Frances Dickinson, ophthalmologist and surgeon, and the president and founder of the Harvey Medical College in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Dickinson was a cousin to Susan B. Anthony and worked with her for Woman's Suffrage.


In 1893, she was on the board for lady managers for the Women's Building at the Chicago World Columbian Exposition. 


At the Turn of the century, she retired from the medical field for health reasons and moved to Orange City, FL where her brother and sister, Albert and Melissa Dickinson were living. She lived in Orange City for over 40 years until her death in 1945


Caryn Long of West Volusia Historical Society DeLand House Players, will portray Dr. Frances Dickinson.
