Martha May Eliot was a foremost pediatrician and specialist in public health, an assistant director for WHO and an architect of New Deal and postwar programs for maternal and child health. During undergraduate study at Bryn Mawr College, she met Ethel Collins Dunham, who was to become her life partner. Dunham established national standards for the hospital care of newborn children, and expanded the scope of health care for growing youngsters by monitoring their progress. After completing their undergraduate education, the two enrolled together at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1914. Lillian Faderman writes: "[At] Bryn Mawr she met a twenty-six year old freshman, Ethel Dunham. From 1910 to Ethel's death in 1969, the two women were inseparable. As a couple, Martha Eliot and Ethel Dunham succeeded in times that were as unsympathetic to professional women as they were to lesbians.” In the 1970s, during Martha's travels for WHO, they wrote each other every day: "Dearest, it was hard to say goodbye and I shall miss you terribly... Ever and ever so much love, my darling." Martha to Ethel. "How I count the time until you do arrive. I miss you my darling." Ethel to Martha.
Together from 1910 to 1969: 59 years.
