Alice Boole Campbell M.D. (3 March 1836 – 31 December 1908) was a homeopathic physician. In 1863 she was one of the first women to graduate from Clemence Lozier‘s New York Homeopathic College, where she later served on the governing board.
Alice B. Campbell was Consulting Physician at the Women’s Homeopathic Hospital of Philadelphia and a founder of the Eastern District Homeopathic Hospital and the Memorial Hospital for Women and Children in Brooklyn, which came into being in 1881 and was chartered in 1883, after women doctors were refused a clinic in the existing hospitals.
Alice Boole was born in New York City in March 1836, the thirteenth of fourteen children. She graduated from Rutger’s Institute for young ladies, located on Madison Street, aged 18, and the following year married William Campbell, a graduate of Columbia College Law School.
Left a widow with three young children, Campbell developed a thriving practice and became active in the suffrage, forcing the General Conference of the Church in 1906 to back down when they refused to allow women to be Church delegates.
She had a large private practice in Brooklyn, where she lived throughout her career, but regularly received patients from other cities and states.
Alice Boole Campbell died of angina pectoris at her home, 439 Puttnam Avenue, Brooklyn, in December 1908, aged 75.
