Did you know Gertrude Stein was almost a doctor?
After her undergraduate years at Radcliffe College, she worked at Woods Hole Laboratory and then went to Johns Hopkins medical school for 3 and a half years.
During her time at Radcliffe, she worked with the venerable William James on Normal Motor Automatism (Craziness – Stein and James???)

She escaped before graduation and fled to Paris where she began her illustrious literary and social career.
