Dorcas Cooke Doolittle
Born in Philadelphia, Doolittle graduated from a female seminary, and then enrolled at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women (now Moore College of Art & Design), where she studied illustration. Later, she attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where her instructors included Breckenridge and Arthur B. Carles. Doolittle had a studio at 17th and Chestnut Streets where other women would paint and share the expense of models. Carles came once a week to critique their work. Doolittle exhibited her work regularly and continued to paint and teach.
