Sophie Savard

Summary

image-placeholder

Sophie  Elodie Savard is the daughter of Simon Savard, a physician, and Selah Mae Freeman. Soon after her parents married they moved to New Orleans so that Simon could study medicine by apprenticing to his uncles, the doctors Paul and Philippe Savard (see the Savard family tree here).

Sophie, born 8 July 1855 in New Orleans, was orphaned at age ten. At that time she was taken in by her Aunt Quinlan1  and moved to New York to be raised in her home on Waverly Place. Also in the household is her half cousin Anna Savard. The two girls grow up together with a strong bond.

Sophie and Anna attend first grammar school and then enroll at the Rutgers Women’s College. Finally they go to the Woman’s Medical College. Sophie specializes in obstetrics and gynecology. As a Free Woman of Color many professional and social avenues are shut to her, but she is a talented practitioner and is often called on by her male colleagues. She works primarily among the poor women and children of the city.
