Jennie (Jenny) Kidd Trout, née Gowanlock, physician (b at Kelso, Scot 21 Apr 1841; d at Los Angeles, Calif 10 Nov 1921). She grew up near Stratford, Ont, and after her marriage in 1865 to Toronto publisher Edward Trout decided to become a doctor. As no Canadian medical school admitted women, she enrolled at the Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania, graduating in 1875. That same year, on passing the Ontario registration exam, Dr Trout became the first Canadian woman licensed to practise medicine in Canada. A fervent promoter of women in medicine, she helped endow the Women's Medical College, Kingston, Ont, in 1883.
