The following year, Allan held a residency in the psychiatric clinic at Johns Hopkins Hospital before coming home to take South Carolina’s first ever medical board exam. She was the only woman to sit for the exam and scored the highest grade of the 14 candidates taking the test, becoming the first female licensed physician in South Carolina. In 1895, the governor offered Dr. Allan a fulltime position at the state’s Hospital for the Insane, in Columbia. There she treated female patients while also teaching physiology and anatomy to nursing students. After 11 years, she returned to Charleston to care for her ailing father until his death. In Charleston, Dr. Allan occasionally consulted on psychiatric cases, although she never established a practice in the Holy City. She made her mark on history by following her dream, proving the potential and contribution of women in the medical field. The Medical University of South Carolina holds Dr. Allan’s papers, photographs and scrapbooks at its Waring Historical Library. Dr. Allan died in 1954 and is buried at Magnolia Cemetery. feature Shoe Store Expert Fitters Dance & Gymnastics Favorite Brands Girls 7-16 & Jr’s Boys 8-20 Tween & Teen Newborn to size 7 Children’s Boutique Gifts & Accessories Loyalty Program The Common • 210 Coleman Blvd., Mt.
