Early Life and Education

In 1832 Samuel Blackwell moved his family from England to Cincinnati, Ohio. Emily Blackwell was painfully shy but had an inquiring mind; she conducted scientific experiments in their attic as well as reading medical books.

Blackwell applied for medical school applications throughout 1846. She received rejection letters from each, yet remained determined to pursue medicine. Ultimately she approached Dr. Warrington of Philadelphia; who was impressed with Blackwell’s earnestness and determination.

Warrington agreed to mentor her. He introduced her to his medical friends, permitted her to attend lectures, encouraged her to accompany him on house calls and she studied under local physicians and pharmacists – eventually graduating top of her class from Geneva College on January 29, 1849.
