Mary Edwards Walker, 1867

Mary Edwards Walker in 1867. Of the available photographs, this one most nearly matches the way Dr. Walker would have appeared when she spoke at Doolittle Hall in 1864. It does, however, show her wearing the Congressional Medal of Honor that she would not receive until 1866.

Doolittle Hall occupied part of this building, the Doolittle Block. It stood just east of the river. After an 1875 renovation, it was renamed the Academy of Music. The site is now the parking lot for Oswego's old city hall.
