From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elizabeth Jordan Carr (born December 28, 1981 at 7:46 am) was the United States' first baby born from the in-vitro fertilization procedure and the 15th in the world. The technique was conducted at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk under the direction of Doctors Howard Jones and Georgeanna Seegar Jones, who were the first to attempt the process in the United States. She was delivered at Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia by Dr. Mason Andrews weighing 5 pounds 12 ounces. The parents of Elizabeth were Judith Carr, a 28-year-old schoolteacher at the time, and her husband, Roger Carr, 30, of Westminster, Massachusetts. Elizabeth's mother had been unable to conceive normally because complications during earlier unsuccessful pregnancies had forced removal of her fallopian tubes.

A graduate of Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts, Carr worked as a journalist for a newspaper in Maine, Central Maine Newspapers in Augusta, which publishes the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel. They are part of the Seattle Times Family group of newspapers. Following her time in Maine, Carr began work at boston.com, the Boston Globe's online presence.

Carr was named #1 on Portland Magazine's 2007 list of Maine's Most Intriguing People.
