Monterey County: Biographies


DR. MAY C. E. GYDISON is of Danish extraction, the daughter of Rev. L. M. Gydison, of the Danish Lutheran Church. She received her medical education at the Omaha Medical College, of Omaha, Nebraska, and spent one year of study in Europe, chiefly in the large hospitals of Germany and Denmark. After her return from Europe she graduated from the Woman's Medical College, of Chicago, Illinois, and this completed her course of studies. She then practiced her profession one year in Omaha, when her father's health failed, and she came, with her parents, to Salinas City, where she has been practicing since 1884, paying particular attention to the diseases of women. She has opened a hospital on a small scale for ladies needing medical aid, and as it is the only institution of the kind in the county it supplies a great necessity. One has but to know Dr. Gydison to feel assured of receiving the best attention under her care. She is a lady of fine intellectual capacity, and womanly sympathy, and thoroughly enthused with her profession.
