Lynne Reid was born in Melbourne, Australia. Because of the country’s need for doctors during World War II, she received accelerated medical training. After she completed her post-doctoral education in London, her “ground-breading” work on the lung brought her international acclaim.

      She rose to dean of the Cardiothoracic Institute at London University, the first woman to hold the position. She was the first woman to become a professor of experimental pathology in England. When she later moved to the Harvard Medical School, she was one of a handful of women on the faculty.

      This charming and modest memoir chronicles her world travels, her outstanding achievements in science, and her efforts on behalf of female medical students and physicians.
