What's In a Name?
Smith, Donald F.
Fifty years ago, during an era when it was common for women veterinarians and physicians to adopt their husbands’ names when marrying, some students did not change their names. Not all name change stories deal with gender. In addition, during the early decades of the 20th century, it was relatively common for Jewish students or veterinarians to change their names to make them sound less ethnic.
