Admin/Biographical History Dr. Inez Celia Philbrick practiced medicine in Lincoln, Nebraska from 1893 to 1937. Her education included a Batchelor of Arts Degree from the University of Iowa in 1886, which was followed by a teaching position at Fargo, North Dakota. Later she obtained her Master of Arts Degree at the University of Iowa and then earned her medical degree from Women's Medical College of Philadelphia in 1891. Dr. Philbrick was active in the women's suffrage movement in the early 1900's and later devoted much of her time promoting the passage of legislation which would have legalized euthanasia.
