Collection Description

Biographical Note

Yvedt Love Matory (1956-2005) was born on a United States Air Force base in Misawa, Japan, to surgeon William E. Matory and Deborah Love Matory. She attended Shepherd Elementary School and Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., and often spent time with her father in his surgical laboratory at Howard University College of Medicine (Washington, D.C.). She graduated from Yale University Medical School (New Haven, Connecticut) in 1981. Matory served as an intern at Yale University Hospital, as a resident at Howard University Hospital, and as a fellow at the School of Medicine at Juntendo University Hospital in Tokyo (Japan) and the National Cancer Institute (Rockville, Maryland). She joined the Department of Surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, Massachusetts) in 1992. In 2000, Matory completed a master's degree in business administration at Columbia University Business School (New York, New York) and founded a company, HospitalCareOnLine, that used computers and remote monitoring to provide health care for patients following their return home from the hospital.

Matory married author and Harvard University (Boston, Massachusetts) law professor Randall Kennedy in 1985 and the couple had three children: Henry William Kennedy, Thaddeus James Kennedy, and Rachel Elizabeth Kennedy. Matory died from cancer in 2005.
