She Died 4 Years Before I Was Born
I’m blogging today about Montana pioneer lady doctor, Dr. Mary (Mollie) Babcock Atwater. Up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby, We read Montana History every Tuesday evening starting at 6. We’re currently reading the book, “Pioneer Doctor-The Story of a Woman’s Work”. I’m at the Heritage every Tuesday evening for “Montana History” and I am more than anxious to return tomorrow (Tuesday) evening as we’re about 3/4 through this beautifully written and thoroughly researched book and I find it a fascinating read. It all takes place in Marysville (near Helena) in the early years of Mollie’s Montana medical practice. Actually, she began in Bannak and moved on to Marysville and it appears that she’ll eventually end up in Helena before the story’s over. Helena! That’s where I was born. I’m the Puffman. Next week we’ll take “a break” from Montana History and enjoy a “Montana Outdoor Barbecue” at the Heritage. By the way Judy, I like my steak medium rare with ketchup.
