Alumna Is Head Of Tientsin Hospital

In 1920 a Chinese woman gradu-
ated from the University medical
school. Few of her classmates would
remember the name of Dr. Mei Ing
Ting, but in the memory of Mrs.
Frederick Jordan, Dean of Women at
that time, Dr. Ting holds a place
which few others equal.
Perhaps it's because of her amaz-
ing record as director of the Tientsin
Woman's Hospital that Dr. Ting is
so warmly remembered-more prob-
ably it's because of the keen sense of
humor, decisive personality and out-
standing intelligence which she dis-
played as a student.
Returns To China
The number of women in the medi-
cal school in 1920 was still smaller
than today, and the number of Chi-
nese women narrowed down to one
-Dr. Ting. As a freshman she ef-
fectively ended all male opposition by
turning to the men in her class and
stating in her precise Oriental fa-
shion, "If you think your rude con-
duct can dissuade me from following
the medical profession you are mis-

and Philadelphia hospitals complet-

school for girls. The school had been
run by a religious group and wa:
very old-fashioned. Acting both a
director and medical advisor, Dr
Ting put the school in good working
order within a few years.
To combat tuberculosis among the
children of Tientsin, Dr. Ting started
a goat farm and has since provided
all her patients with goats' 'milk. In
addition to that she has a family of
four-two nieces and two nephews-
all of whom she is educating, and
intends, to send to America.
A Barbour Fellow
In 1929 Dr. Ting returned to the
University as a Barbour Fellow. In
stead of using her two years in work-
ing for a Ph.D.-the customary thing
-she spent her time collecting in-
formation for a book on pre-natal
care. In returning to China she went
by way of Italy (and the rest of Eu-
rope) and collected information from
the hospitals in every country which
she visited.
On the boat she met an old banker,
a friend of her father's, who became
interested in her work and later pub-
lished her book in pamphlet form,
making it possible for Chinese women
to purchase the book for a few cents.
That book was the- first of its kind in,

possible for her to step directly into
the position of director of the Tient-
sin Women's Hospital-as well as the
supplementary posts of supervising
nurse and head surgeon.
Establishes Nursing Home
Her first step as director was to
establish a nursing home in con-
junction with the hospital. Original-
ly a publicly supported institution,
there had been no funds for several
years and the building and quality
of care had suffered accordingly.
Under Dr. Ting's directorship a new
building has been built, as well as the
nurses' home and a children's hos-
pital-all with private funds. The
