Louise Pearce (1885-1959): 'physician and pathologist, [she] was one of the foremost women scientists of the early 20th century. Her research with pathologist Wade Hampton Brown led to a cure for trypanosomiasis (African Sleeping sickness) in 1919. . . . After working for a year as house officer in the [Johns Hopkins] university hospital, she wrote to Simon Flexner, director of the Rockefeller Institute in New York City, requesting a position. When Flexner received Dr. Pearce's letter of application, he relished the idea of including a woman on the Institute's scientific staff. In 1913, when asked her opinion of being the first woman to work directly with Flexner, Dr. Pearce responded with a smile, 'I just think it's ripping.' . . . Pearce spent her last years at Trevanna Farm, in Skillmann, New Jersey, a home she shared with author Ida A. R. Wylie and the noted New York City public health physician S. Josephine Baker' ('Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America's Women Physicians'; on-line exhibit at the National Library of Medicine Web site). In the years 1926-27, Zinsser and Pearce were both publishing papers in the J. Exp. Med. (see its Web site, where the papers can actually be downloaded as Adobe files).
