In the Waning Years of the Depression, medical students from New Orleans and Omaha begin a two-year correspondence across 1,100 miles. As war begins to rumble overseas, they determine to face an uncertain future together, trusting in each other and the relationship they built letter by letter. Compiled from a private collection of nearly 800 letters, The Courtship of Two Doctors recreates the medical era before antibiotics, when health workers were at risk of serious infection, and vividly illustrates the 1930s social barriers challenging two-career marriages.
