Long Description:
Maude Elizabeth Seymour Abbott
Pathologiste de renommée mondiale, Maude Abbott fut l'une des premières femmes à pratiquer et à enseigner la médecine au Canada. Engagée à la Faculté de médecine de l'Université McGill dès 1898, elle fut conservatrice du Musée médical où elle développa une classification des spécimens. Elle participa à la fondation et à la destinée de l'Association internationale des musées médicaux et se distingua également comme pionnière de l'histoire médicale de McGill. Ses recherches sur les maladies cardiaques congénitales et son ouvrage, Atlas of Congenital Cardiac Disease, en firent une sommité dans le domaine.
