Margaret Ann Bulkley – Doctor, 1790 – 1865.
ALIAS: Dr. James Barry
Perhaps one of the earliest recorded transgender people, Margaret Ann Bulkley began identifying as a man as a ticket into medical school.
From the beginning of her studies, Margaret Ann Bulkley would be James Barry, who completed two years in the British Army as a surgeon before moving to Cape Town in South Africa.
During his 10 years in Cape Town, James made significant improvements to sanitation and water systems, improved conditions for slaves, prisoners, and the mentally ill, and performed one of the first known successful Caesarean sections in which the mother and child survived.
