Esther Pohl Lovejoy
She was born Esther Clayson in a lumber camp near Seabeck, Washington, and received almost no formal early education. Despite this, she became only the second woman to graduate from University of Oregon's medical school (1894), and was among the founders and served as first president of the Medical Women’s International Association (1919). She was awarded the Elizabeth Blackwell Medal in 1951 and 1957.
She created the Everybody’s Equal Suffrage League ahead of the 1912 election, when Oregon became the 7th state to grant women the right to vote.
