The Story of Doc Susie
Dr. Susan Anderson, or "Doc Susie" as she was called, was the first woman doctor in Fraser, CO. She arrived there in 1907 and practiced medicine until 1956. The story tells of Doc Susie's life, of how she became a doctor and moved to the Fraser valley and set up her practice. It tells of her struggles, challenges and triumphs in treating the lumberjacks, ranchers and railroaders of the area over the many years. It also tells of the many changes she saw over the years, like the building of the Moffat Tunnel. When she first arrived the men scoffed at her because she was a woman doctor but after awhile they would say "Call Doc Susie; she'll come if she has to walk!"
Join us for a living history presentation of the life and times of Doc Susie, presented by Linda Batlin
