Margaret Sanger, née Higgins
b. 9-14-1879; Corning, NY

Margaret Sanger was a birth control activist who gradually won support for a woman to decide how and when she would have children. She was the founder of the American Birth Control League which eventually became Planned Parenthood.

FYI - Margaret, who was the 6th child of 11 live births, spent her childhood caring for the household and siblings. Her mother, Anne Purcell Higgins, was a devout Catholic who went through 18 pregnancies before dying of tuberculosis and cervical cancer.

Margaret Sanger quotes ~
• “No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.”
• “When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race.”

John Sappington
b. 5-15-1776; Havre de Grace, MD
d. 9-7-1856; Arrow Rock, MO

Dr. John Sappington, the author of the first medical book published west of the Mississippi River, is regarded as the first doctor to “effectively use quinine (from the chinchona plant) for the treatment of malaria and fevers.”

In 1832 Dr. Sappington began marketing his Anti-Fever Pills in Missouri and founded a company to sell the pills nationwide. Eventually the value of the pills superceded the standard treatment of bleeding the sick patient, especially after Dr. Sappington revealed the formula for the pills in his medical book.

Dr. Sappington was friends with Senator Thomas Hart Benton and the artist George Caleb Bingham; he was also the father-in-law and grandfather of three Missouri governors.
