10-20 DATES, ANNIVERSARIES, and EVENTS
Event 10-20-1847, Elizabeth Blackwell's applicationto medical school is accepted. Though she was refused admittance to 29 medical schools and publicly ridiculed for her attempts, Elizabeth Blackwell persisted. She studied privately for three years before being admitted to the Medical Institute of Geneva, NY, after the director had passed her application on to the students for approval.
Thinking it to be a joke, they agreed on October 20, 1847, that "...the application of Elizabeth Blackwell to become a member of our class meets our entire approval."
Her arrival at the school was greeted with shock and hostility, however. She was cursed, spat upon, refused lodging at first, and barred from some classroom demonstrations.
Event: 10-20-1919, the Women's International Bowling Congress is incorporated.
