2. Maurer, Bettina Adela. biographical career studies based on the life stories of Germany´s first women vets and on qualitative career-oriented interviews carried out with women vets having graduated during 1950 - 1952 and 1958 - 1989.

Degree: 1998, Freie Universität Berlin

Based on women vets´ career biographies, it was the object of this study to point out opportunities and impediments encountered in the veterinary profession as well as to investigate women-specific problem areas and explore ways of coping with such difficulties. In this connection, the historic development of the role of women in veterinary medicine was also taken into consideration. So far, apart from giving job-related comments and statistic surveys, women vets were interviewed and asked to fill in questionnaires. These surveys helped primarily in getting a general idea of the professional situation of younger women. Due to the specific type of survey chosen they were, however, inadequate in shedding light upon causes or decision-making processes that have led to specific individual situations that vary from person to person. As to the importance of women vets in history, their numbers and fields of work, only few persons are mentioned in literature. For this reason this study aims, on the one hand, at investigating the history of women in veterinary medicine (chapter 3.2). This is achieved by looking into the biographies of the first women vets - always keeping in mind the stage of development of women education at the time as well as the specific characteristics of the veterinary studies and the profession itself. To this end and in order to find out the names of women vets and students, an investigation was made into directories of vets and into other directories. In addition to this, indexes of doctorates, license publications as well as - restricted to the faculty of Berlin - registration lists and additional documents from the archives were searched. The investigation revealed that, between 1918 and 1945, 55 women, including six from foreign countries, had successfully completed their veterinary studies - this number being much higher than previously indicated in literature. A large number of these first women vets - the majority of them from the educated bourgeousie - chose the town of Berlin for their studies and future doctorate. As one can see from their biographies, they later worked in all veterinarian fields. The majority of them worked in practices, most of all in large animal practice. The effects of wartime and the subsequent post-war period strongly influenced most of their careers. Besides the difficulties produced by the hard times there were, however, also outstanding opportunities. In order to compare the situation in Germany with the one in foreign countries, the beginnings of women veterinary studies abroad were described. In most European countries the first women vets completed their studies at a later time than in Germany (only exceptions: France in 1896 and Britain in 1900). A second aim of this study is to describe individual careers of women vets. In qualitative interviews focusing on the career biographies of women vets having graduated at different time periods and working in different veterinary fields, the technique of "problem-centralized" interviews… Advisors/Committee Members: n (gender), Univ.-Prof. Dr. G. v.

3. Perdue, Katherine Anne. Writing Desire: The Love Letters of Frieda Fraser and Edith Williams.

Degree: PhD, History, 2015, York University

This dissertation analyzes the intimate relationship produced by and reflected in the written correspondence between Frieda Fraser and Edith Williams, arguably the largest correspondence of its kind in North America. Frieda Fraser was a professor of microbiology at the University of Toronto and Edith Williams was one of the first female veterinarians in Canada. Their correspondence was written from 1924 to 1927 and then intermittently from 1933 to 1943. This dissertation contends that Frieda’s and Edith’s correspondence was a place wherein the women created a self-defined sexual description that was in dialogue with cultural discourses that denoted the meaning of the modern lesbian. Frieda and Edith referred to themselves as “devoted women,” their designation of a sexual subjectivity that marked their differentiation from these discourses. Edith and Frieda arrived upon a unique notion of romantic devotion, shaped alongside an awareness of contemporary depictions of the lesbian in literature, in science, and in the theatre. This dissertation analyzes how two middle-class Canadian women came to live their lives as “devoted women” within a culture that did not recognize, nor mirror their sexual identities. Affected by modernism, Edith’s and Frieda’s letter-writing produced, enhanced, and helped the women define their desire for one another. Moreover, the women’s devoted relationship benefitted their medical careers and their medical careers benefitted their partnership. In relation to family and profession this dissertation asks to what degree was discretion employed in order to preserve their relationship? In focusing on the correspondence, this dissertation is more than an exercise in “finding the lesbians” in Canadian history: it asks “how did the lesbians find themselves?” Advisors/Committee Members: McPherson, Kathryn (advisor).
