This is Dr. Portia McKnight Lubchenco, born in 1887 in the Smallwood Community, now Portia Road.
 Portia  was the first female medical student to graduate from North Carolina Medical College in Charlotte in 1912.
After marrying Mr. Alexis Lubchenco and a harrowing trip from Russia  back to Blythewood in 1917, she started  a very busy medical practice  and was said to have easily  delivered 100 babies a year at their homes. 
Due to the destructive  boll weevil in the 1930's the family moved to Colorado where Dr. Lubchenco had a very successful medical practice and was given many awards.  

In 1953
Portia McKnight Lubchenco 
became the
     Mother of the Year
                     in   Colorado.
