Chapter 7 explores how the issues raised in Chapters 4 and 5 played out in the lives of five particular individuals, Emily Winifred Dickson (RCSI, 1891), Emma Crooks (QCB, 1899), Lily Baker (TCD, 1906), Mary McGivern (UCD, 1925) and Jane D. Fulton (TCD, 1925). These case studies demonstrate the importance of the personal story, which is sometimes lost in traditional social histories of medicine, yet rather than being traditional narratives of ‘great men’ and ‘great women’, they are narratives of ordinary women who trained at Irish institutions in the period and which demonstrate the themes considered in previous chapters.
