Bites and Bits of History August 2023

August 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us on August 17 for our Bites and Bits of History Lunchtime Series for “Shocking Youngstown – Dr. Richard D. Murray” with Ginger Williams, TransOhio Board Member

A pivotal yet under-examined figure in medical and transgender history, Dr. Richard D. Murray (1921-2002) was a force in Youngstown, Ohio during the latter half of the 20th century. He was a patron of the arts, artist, author, prognosticator, and highly accomplished physician. Dr. Murray’s Medart building was his palace; for many, it was a gender crossroads. This presentation synthesizes original research from multiple archives, offering a look at the career of a path breaking plastic surgeon who saw their life’s work as helping people be the best version of themselves.
