Constance Ellis.

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Constance Ellis was born in Carlton, Victoria, Australia back in 1872 to Louis and Lydia. She attended the Presbyterian Ladies’ College Melbourne graduating in 1890. She continued her education at the University of Melbourne from 1894-1899. She served her residency at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and another two years at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

She worked at the University of Melbourne as a demonstrator in pathology. She was a founding member of the Victorian Medical Women’s Society and a delegate on the Victorian council of the British Medical Association. She suffered from Paget’s disease and died in 1942, she was 69.

What you may not know about Constance is that she was the first woman to graduate from the University of Melbourne as a Doctor of Medicine and the first Australian woman doctor to serve as a British Medical Association councilor.

Hello James - thanks for sharing this story.  Based on this post, I did a quick search of Paget's disease which I was previously unfamiliar and learned a bit more.

Always great, James Dray , to hear of the wonderful accomplishments of women and especially during the past when they were relegated to 2nd position on the humanity scale.
