née BAKER, Mary A(nn) Morse

The only American woman to found a lasting American-based religion, Mary Baker Eddy overcame years of ill health and great personal struggle to make an indelible mark on society, religion and journalism.

From early childhood she was not strong physically, and in her search for health she sought relief through various healing systems including allopathy, homeopathy, hydropathy, electricity, and various others, but without success. She regarded her discovery of Christian Science as resulting directly and immediately from an accident which occurred in Lynn, MA, in 1866. While on her way to a meeting of the Good Templars, she fell on an icy street and was severely injured. She was carried to a nearby residence where she was attended by a physician and cared for during the night. The next day she was removed to her home in the adjacent town of Swampscott in a critical condition. On the third day following the injury, when she was apparently near death, she asked for her Bible, opened it to Mat. ix. 2, and reading the account of the healing of the palsied man by Jesus, was herself healed and able to rise from her sickbed.
