Strong-willed face, unusually short hair This is Elizaveta Sergeevna Drenteln - a “woman doctor”, as she signed her works. Elizabeth was born in 1857 in the family of a prominent military leader Sergei Romanovich Drenteln and the daughter of a Yakut merchant Lydia Vasilievna Basnina. In 1883, after successfully completing medical courses for women at the Nikolaev military hospital in St. Petersburg, Liza received the title of doctor for women's and children's diseases. In 1884, she became the first head of the Rukavishnikovskaya hospital of the Moscow provincial zemstvo (now on the site of the hospital there is the Moscow regional hospital for war veterans in Goluboy). This hospital was well equipped with the care of the benefactors Rukavishnikovs and the zemstvo. Elizaveta Sergeevna set to work with her usual energy. The writer Vsevolod Garshin, a family friend, said about her: “She is a good person. I'm only afraid that I will torture myself.”Drenteln acted as a general practitioner, but most of all she was interested in obstetrics and gynecology, as well as helping the poor. Apparently, this prompted her, after working for about five years in "Rukavishka", to leave for Kharkov, where in 1891 a branch of the children's hospital was opened in Moskalevka, the poorest district of the city. Here Elizaveta Sergeevna worked for free, and then on the staff, becoming the head of the gynecological department and, as best she could, improving the medical and living conditions of the patients. Later, together with like-minded people, she organized her own very good hospital for the poor "Women's Help". Elizaveta Drenteln shared her experience as a practicing doctor in lectures and publications devoted to caring for newborns, upbringing, women's health, as well as the issue of gender relations. These works were read and discussed. The name Drenteln is mentioned in the correspondence of Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy. And today, a hundred years later, interest in the legacy of the woman doctor Elizaveta Sergeevna Drenteln has not dried up. In 2020, her final work "Studies on the nature of women and men: the foundations of sexual and women's issues in their mutual connection" was republished and turned out to be of interest to the modern reader.
