[About the Great Lives biography series.]

Susan Anderson was born in 1870 in Indiana and graduated from medical school in 1897 at the University of Michigan. Returning to her family in Cripple Creek, Colorado, she set up a medical practice before moving on to Denver and then Greeley, Colorado.

In 1907, seeking a dry and cold climate to improve her tuberculosis condition, she moved to the mountain town of Fraser in Grand County. As her health improved, she began to treat the local people—and their animals.

"Doc Susie," as she came to be known, was the best, and only, doctor in the area for many years. She served as Grand County Coroner during construction of the six-mile long Moffat Tunnel, which replaced the treacherous Moffat Road rail line. At times, she had to go into the tunnel to care for the injured or to retrieve bodies.

Doc Susie continued her medical practice until 1956 and died in Denver on April 16, 1960.
