Biographical/Historical Notes
Mary Miller Dietrich (1919-2004) was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1919. She studied at Mount Holyoke College and Tufts University Medical School, becoming a M.D. in 1945. Early in her career she maintained a private practice out of her house in Orrington, Maine. She would later work at the Cutler Student Health Center at the University of Maine, Eastern Maine General Hospital, and St. Joseph's Hospital in Bangor. She belonged to a number of medical societies, including the American Women's Association, the Penobscot County Medical Society, the Bangor Medical Club, and the American Academy of General Practice.
