She was the first woman to be licensed by examination. Hoff could not attend medical school, but studied with her physician father and on her own. She practiced medicine for nearly 40 years, making house calls on horseback. A nonprofit clinic named for her was scheduled to open in West Milford in the summer of 2000.
