"First Hindu Woman Here Studying Medicine Is a Brilliant Student"
Photograph in a newspaper of Premala Shahane of Maharashtra, student at the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania, circa 1928-29. The caption indicates that Shahane's first name is 'Pamela', though elsewhere she is identified as 'Premala'. The caption also incorrectly states that Shahane was the first "Hindu Woman" at the Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania.
From Dr. Alsop's Article "The Art of Healing"
Excerpt from an article title “The Art of Healing” mentioning Dr. Maya Das, one of the first women from India to earn her degree in medicine in the United States. “Miss Maya Das was a Hindoo girl, very slim, with clear-cut, aristocratic features, who went through her medical training side by side with us, never missing an answer, never absent, never slighting a piece of work, always perfect.”
