"When Girls Ride the Subway"
May 20, 1932
Dr. Dorothy Bocker came to the WNYC studio to deliver the talk "When Girls Ride the Subway to College." While we don't have a recording or the text of Bocker's remarks, one might guess that she was hopeful that coeds on their way to City College, NYU and other places of higher learning were well aware of the human reproductive system. Dr. Bocker was the first physician and Medical Director of the Clinical Research Bureau, founded by Margaret Sanger. The Bureau opened in 1923 and was the first legal birth control clinic in the United States.
