Women in Physiology
Since the early years of the American Physiological Society (APS, the Society) there have been women in physiology. The first woman member of APS, Ida Hyde, was elected in 1902. One of her papers, the result of work done in William T. Porter’s laboratory at Harvard Medical School, appeared in the first volume of the American Journal of Physiology in 1898. Through the first seventy-five years of the Society’s history, women were regularly elected members, participated on programs, and published in the Society’s journals. However, not until the 1970s, when the role of women in the sciences became of general concern (5), did they begin to take an important role in the management of the Society.
