A tribute to Marie Curie-Sklodowska by the Women's Medical Society of New York State, organized in 1907 with the purpose of bringing the medical women of New York State into communication with each other for their mutual advantage, to encourage social and harmonious relations within the profession, to extend medical knowledge and to advance medical science. Marion Craig Potter was a physician and suffragist, who was the first woman physician to be appointed to the Rochester City Hospital, around 1898. She served as Vice President of the Medical Women's National Association, as President of both the Blackwell Medical Society and the Women's Medical Society of New York State, and belonged to the Committee of Medical Women of the Council of National Defense during World War I.
