A native of Warren Co., Ky., she exerted a powerful influence on public health in Ky. South earned her MD in 1904 and returned to Bowling Green to practice medicine, establishing St. Joseph's Hospital in her family's home on 12th St. She served as state bacteriologist from 1911-1951.

Dr. South earned national acclaim with her research on hookworms, which led to her election as the 1st female VP of the AMA in 1913. In 1922, she began the first lab tech training program in the US. She led the movement to ban the use of the public drinking cup. As early as the 1930s, she championed the use of vaccines. Sponsored by the Warren County Medical Society
