The Daily Dispatch: September 16, 1861., [Electronic resource], Death of a celebrated German Female. (search)
Death of a celebrated German Female. --Germany has lost one of her most eminent female scholars. Frau Dr. Heidenreich, nee von Siebold, died at Darmstadt recently. She was born in 1792, studied the science of midwifery at the Universities of Gottingen and Giesson, and took her Doctor's degree in 1817, not honoris causa, by favor of the faculty, but like any other German student, by writing the customary Latin dissertation, as well as by defending, in public disputation, a number of medical theses. She took up her permanent abode at Darmstadt, where she was universally honored as one of the first living authorities of her special branch of science.
