James Barry

Dr James Miranda Steuart Barry (c. 1789/1799 – 25 July 1865, born Margaret Ann Bulkley)
"Although Barry's entire adult life was lived as a man, Barry was born anatomically female, under the name Margaret Ann Bulkley. Barry chose to live as a man in both public and private life at least in part in order to be accepted as a university student and pursue a career as a surgeon, the truth only becoming known to the public and to military colleagues after death."
