The New York Times highlighted Dr. Elizabeth Hayes in its “Overlooked” feature, a series of obituaries on remarkable people whose deaths, beginning in 1851, went unreported in the publication. Dr. Hayes graduated from the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University in 1936. In 1945, she was working as a coal town doctor and told the Shawmut Mining company that owned the town she would quit unless it addressed unsanitary conditions. About 350 miners went on strike after the company accepted her resignation.
