Description: Florida Humanities Speaker Series: "Doc Anna: Swamp Doctor of Florida” by Carrie Sue Ayvar
“If you’ve never heard the roar of a bull alligator and some night bird answer, you haven’t lived.” So said Dr. Anna Darrow (1876-1959) who, in 1909, became only the 2nd woman doctor licensed in Florida. She often braved swampland, alligators, venomous snakes, and some of the most dangerous outlaw gangs this state has ever seen, in order to heal the sick, nurse the wounded and deliver babies. Chautauqua Scholar, Carrie Sue Ayvar, introduces you to this fearless wife, mother, doctor, pharmacist, artist and even veterinarian when needed.
