Cressida Potter of the Reids of Rinmore Site writes of Dr Ada Chree Reid

“An equally distinguished lady was born to Adam Reid, Adam was the grandson of Peter Reid and Mary Dingual of Baltimore, Glenbuchat and brother of my great, great, great grandfather James. Adam left the glen in 1884 for the United States of America and settled in New York City. He married an American Nellie Dodge and they had five children. Ada Chree Reid was their second daughter born in 1896 in Connecticut (Chree was Adam's mother's maiden name).

Ada was a pioneering woman doctor in Manhattan. In the 1920 census for the U.S., Ada was aged 24 and a pathologist, but by 1930 she was head of her own household and was a 'medical physician'. She was to champion equal rights for women in medical education programmes and the armed forces and was a prominent member of the National American Women's Suffrage Association. In 1929 she published a medical paper entitled "The Value of the Fluoroscope as an Adjunct to Routine Physical Examination of the chest" in the American Revue of Tuberculosis.

Dr Ada Chree Reid also served on the Committee for the World Health Organization and was secretary of the Women's Medical Association of the City of New York ; she was also a member of the Medical Women's International Association and on the Board of Directors for World Health Inc. Ada died on 2nd May 1974 in Norwich Connecticut: She never married dedicating her life to medicine.
