Dr. Iga Mori (毛利伊賀, 1864-1951) was an Issei, or first-generation Japanese immigrant to the United States. He was one of the first students of color at Cooper Medical College, where he received his MD in 1891. Not long after his graduation, Cooper Medical College became Stanford University’s School of Medicine. Mori’s work as a physician and community leader reflected both the obstacles he faced as well as his personal determination and resilience. You can learn more about Iga Mori and the history of Stanford Medicine in the Medical History Center, located in Lane Medical Library.
