This profile portrait of Dr. Sarah Garland Boyd Jones was published in Twenty-five Years History of the Grand Fountain of the United Order of True Reformers, 1881–1905 (1909). The photograph's caption misidentifies Jones as "the first woman physican to pass a Medical Board in Virginia" when, In fact, a white woman had passed the examination in 1890. Jones became the first African American woman to pass the Virginia Medical Examining Board's examination in 1893. She was a member of the Grand Fountain, an African American fraternal organization.
