Abbott, one of Canada's earliest female medical graduates, an expert on congenital heart disease. She received her M.D., C.M. from Bishop's University in 1894 and was the only woman in her class. "In the Foreword to this book, the eminent cardiologist, Paul D. White, stated that 'it was left to Maude Abbott, fired by a spark from Osler, to make the subject one of such general and widespread interest that we no longer regard it with either disdain or awe as a mystery for the autopsy table alone to discover and to solve. She has been the most important of the pioneers in establishing congenital heart disease as a living part of clinical medicine.' Abbott, refused admission to the medical school of McGill University in Montreal, received her medical degree from Bishop's College. Abbott eventually was appointed to the McGill medical faculty and was later appointed curator of the McGill Medical Historical Museum. A skilled physician and pathologist, she utilized her broad clinical experience and exposure to the wide range of specimens at the museum to prepare this book on cardiac anomalies. Well illustrated with twenty-five detailed plates, it has become a classic in its field." â€“ Heirs of Hippocrates 2276. [E. Ray Borun] First Edition.
