“X-Rays showing the condition of the patient before operating are studied by Dr. Anita Figueredo, an American woman surgeon, who practices in a government-operated hospital in Washington, the U.S. capital. Outstanding among U.S. women, who by greater numbers every year are taking their places in professions and occupations formerly open only to men, Dr. Figueredo received her medical education at Long Island Medical College near New York City and for some time was a resident surgeon in a New York Memorial Hospital.”
