    Notes:         Born in Boston, Mass., Myrick graduated from
                      Girls' Latin School in Boston (1892), and Smith College
                      (1896) and received her medical degree from Johns Hopkins
                      University (1900).  She practiced medicine in Boston, where
                      for ten years she was superintendent of the New England
                      Hospital for Women and Children.  She was subsequently a
                      physician at Schraffts Candy Co.  After retiring, Myrick
                      pursued her lifelong hobbies of gardening and photography.
                      She was a prize-winning amateur photographer and was credited
                      with developing some of the first X-ray film used at New
                      England Hospital for Women and Children.
                   Collection includes photographs and negatives
                      (some probably taken by Myrick) of Myrick and friends at
                      Smith College; reprints of articles by her; Smith College
                      commencement and reunion programs; and letters, 1896-1905,
                      from Myrick mostly to Alice (her sister?), describing her
                      training at Johns Hopkins and some of her patients there,
                      including a prostitute, and her practice in Boston.
