Plaque Text

One of the earliest Canadian female medical missionaries, Elizabeth Rabb Beatty was born near Caintown and moved to Lansdowne where she attended local schools. She taught in Leeds County before entering Queen's University, Kingston, to study medicine. Graduating in 1884, she was sent by the Presbyterian Women's Foreign Missionary Society to Indore, Central India. Two years later she was joined by another medical missionary, Dr. Marion Oliver, with whom she co-operated in the opening of a women's hospital in 1891. By winning the confidence of the local population, the doctors helped to lay the foundation of the success of the mission's educational and religious work. Forced to return to Canada because of illness, Dr. Beatty retired in 1892 and lived here until her death.
