Maud Mellish Wilson: A Singular Voice

Based on writings, photographs, home movies and archival items, this film shares the remarkable life of Maud Mellish Wilson, hired “to organize a library and do editorial work in connection with the publication of papers,” who became a key figure in developing the reputation of Mayo Clinic.

In 1907, Dr. Will Mayo recruited a 43-year-old woman from Chicago. Over the next quarter century, Maud Mellish Wilson edited thousands of articles by Mayo Clinic physicians and scientists, developing a clear institutional voice. She founded a publication that is now a leading peer-reviewed medical journal and oversaw the creation of one of the world’s great medical libraries. The Mayo brothers considered her to be a key figure in the development of the clinic’s reputation.
