C. Louise Caudill Video Collection
The C. Louise Caudill Video Collection consists of digitized video recordings related to the 50 year medical career of Dr. Louise Caudill of Morehead, Kentucky from 1987 to 1997.

Claire Louise Caudill was born in Morehead, Kentucky, in 1912, and lived there until 1930, when she left to attend Ohio State University. Later, she received her Medical Doctorate from the University of Louisville in 1946. She was one of two women in her class. Louise Caudill returned to Morehead and began a medical practice in 1947 with the intention of making a difference in the community. As an advocate of advanced health care in Eastern Kentucky, she was a driving force behind the expansion of women’s health issues and also played an enormous role in the establishment of the St. Claire Medical Center in 1961. It is estimated Caudill delivered over 8,000 babies in Rowan and surrounding counties during her almost fifty years (1957-1998) of practicing medicine. She has received numerous awards and recognitions for her work, including the 1994 “Country Doctor of the Year” award.
