      The Biwabik Hospital and Biwabik Bray Family
      Written by Robert Bray - July 6, 1976
      The Biwabik Hospital was established in 1892 by Dr. William H. Magie and was sold to Dr. Ralph Sewall about 1896. Dr. Sewall was a classmate of Dr. C.W. Bray and Dr. Mary Bassett.
      Dr. Mary Elizabeth Bassett (1863-1957) was born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Her father died when she was less than a year old and her mother died six years later. During her childhood she was cared for by her maternal aunt, Lottie Stultz. She was graduated from high school in Hastings, Minnesota, in 1882, then worked as a bookkeeper in a store to earn money to go to the university. Her salary was nothing for a few months, then $12.00 a month, and finally $50.00 a month. Her friends thought that was a tremendous salary and better than going to the university. However, she did go to the University of Minnesota and started in mid--term in January 1889. She entered the second term classes of Virgil, Chemistry and Algebra and had no previous Latin. She lived with friends, Mr. and Mrs. L.M. Countryman and their daughter, Gratia. After she used up her savings, Mr. Countryman loaned her $25.00 a month, without interest and gave her room and board until she finished school. She was graduated from the Medical School in 1895 at the head of her class. This should have given her an internship of her choice, but most hospitals at that time would not accept women physicians. She was a friend of Dr. Will Mayo and he helped her to get an internship at the State Hospital in Rochester and later on the staff of the State Hospital in St. Peter, Minnesota.
