Flowers Artist, Medical Equipment Inventor. She is remembered for being an American artist in the first half of the 20th century. While she was in Paris, World War I began and she laid aside her paint brush to become in charge of the surgical supplies of the American Ambulance Hospital in Newully-sur-Siene. After seeing soldiers with the serious battle wounds of their limbs, she, along with orthopedic surgeons, designed an inexpensive wooden apparatus with weights and rope to maintain limb alignment by traction while healing.
Her knowledge of the human anatomy from art school helped her in this task. Not only did the device help in healing but it was documented to decrease limb amputation. She published articles in medical journals about her device and the outcomes of using it. Although there have been many American women receiving this honor, she was the second woman with the first being writer, Edith Wharton. After the war, she remained in France to teach and do portrait paintings for a total of twenty years.
Although she had little to offer, she was a consultant for the treatment of United States President Franklin Roosevelt in his last months of life. In her later years, she returned to the United States. Artist, Medical Equipment Inventor.
