  • Notes 
    • From "History of Homeopathy" by Sylvain Cazalet:

      "STEVENS, MARY ELLA THOMPSON, Detroit, Michigan, was born in Hadley, Michigan, January 29, 1864, her parents being Andrew M. and Mary (Bentley) Thompson. Following her graduation from the high school at Lapeer, Michigan, she studied in Antioch College, at Yellow Springs, Ohio, in 1880, and at Buchtel College, Akron, Ohio, from 1881 until 1883. In 1884 she matriculated in the University of Michigan, graduating with the degree of B. A. in 1885, and then entered the homœopathic department of that institution, completing a three years' course in 1888. She practiced in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 1888-89 and since then in Detroit, her practice being limited to diseases of women and children. She did post-graduate work in Leland Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, in 1892 ; was a member of the staff of Grace Hospital, Detroit, and in 1888-89 was assistant to the chair of ophthalmology and otology, gynecology and obstetrics and pædology in the homœopathic department of the University of Michigan. She is medical examiner for the Ladies of the Maccabees of the world, was president for two years of the Detroit branch of the Collegiate Alumnæ Association and president of the Hahnemannian Society of the Homœopathic department, the only woman who has held this office. She holds membership in the Homœopathic Medical Society of the State of Michigan and the Detroit Homœopathic Practitioners' Society, is a director of the Twentieth Century Club, Detroit, president of the Michigan Mothers' Congress, and a member of the Delta Gamma fraternity. She married Rollin Howard Stevens, M. D., and has one daughter, Frances E. Stevens." [3]
