Women in History

Women have always played an important role in history. There were good women, bad women, destroyers of society and shapers. There were women who were unwillingly caught up in the events of history and those who made them happen. Some women were just downright interesting. This blog will post about them all. Requests are welcome.
We post twice a week. All asks are answered publicly unless otherwise indicated. Tag this blog with #historicwomenblog.

Ruby Hirose 1904- 1960

As a biochemist and bacteriologist, Ruby was an American doctor who researched serums and antitoxins. She is among the 10 women recognized for her contributions to chemistry by the American Chemical Society.Ruby suffered from hay fever, and did a lot of research for that ailment. She also studied and did substantial research on pollens and allergens and made major contributions to the development of vaccines for infant paralysis

Because of their Japanese ancestry, Ruby’s family was put in an American internment camp during World War II. Luckily, Ruby escaped this fate because she was in Ohio at the time of Japanese imprisonment, allowing her  to continue her studies in chemistry.
