MedChi Building Ghost Tour

On October 31, MedChi participated in the annual Doors Open Baltimore as the final event. If you think for a second, there was a reason for that… it was Halloween and we have a ghost!

Most of the events for this year’s Doors Open were virtual, with only a very few live events, with the caveats of a limited audience and vaccine cards being presented at the venue. Sixteen people snatched up the limited spaces and met at the headquarters of MedChi in Mount Vernon. 

As I gave the tour, I talked about the history of the organization, our buildings and how we acquired them,  key players in medicine, the portraits, and much more. 

But since it was Halloween, I also talked about our ghost, Marcia Crocker Noyes, an accomplished woman who worked at the Faculty for 50 years, from 1896 to her death in 1946.
