Dr. Annie Alexander

Dr. Annie Lowrie Alexander (1864-1929) was the first licensed woman physician to practice in North Carolina. Born in the final years of the Civil War, Dr. Annie, as everyone called her, lived during a time when the idea of any woman becoming a doctor horrified many people. Nevertheless, she persevered and enjoyed a successful practice for over forty years, leaving behind a legacy of devotion to her patients and the professional respect of her colleagues.
