Lydia Griffin

After graduating from medical school at the University of Michigan in 1897 and encountering difficulties building a practice in Denver and Greeley, Susan Anderson relocated to the mountain community of Fraser, Colorado.

She practiced medicine there for more than forty years—treating sawmill workers, ranchers, railroad workers, and even their animals. Residents of Grand County all knew her as "Doc Susie."

Lydia Griffin follows the life and career of Doc Susie through the years of World War I, the Great Inflenza epidemic of 1918, her service as coroner during building of the Moffat Tunnel, and her treatment of injured skiers at Winter Park Resort.
