Doc Anna: Swamp Doctor of Florida
Join the Friends of Rookery Bay and Florida Humanities Council for our 4th Lunch & Learn lecture of the season. “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. Chautauqua Scholar, Carrie Sue Ayvar, tells the story, in the first person, of this fearless wife, mother, doctor, pharmacist, artist and even veterinarian when needed.
