On this Day in History:
1556 – Deadliest earthquake in history rocks China – On this day in 1556, an earthquake in Shaanxi, China, kills an estimated 830,000 people. Scientific investigation revealed that the magnitude of the quake was approximately 8.0 to 8.3, which isn’t close to the strongest tremor on record. However, the quake struck in the middle of a densely populated area with poorly constructed buildings and homes, resulting in a horrific death toll. In some places, 60-foot-deep crevices opened in the earth. The earthquake also triggered landslides, which contributed to the massive death toll.
1849 – First woman M.D. – Elizabeth Blackwell is granted a medical degree from Geneva College in New York, becoming the first female to be officially recognized as a physician in U.S. history.
1922 – Insulin injection aids diabetic patient – At Toronto General Hospital, 14-year-old Canadian Leonard Thompson becomes the first person to receive an insulin injection as treatment for diabetes. Diabetes has been recognized as a distinct medical condition for more than 3,000 years, but its exact cause was a mystery until the 20th century.
