Dorcas Rawson (c.1829 - c.1891) was a student in Mary Baker Eddy's second class on Christian Science healing, which was held in November 1870. Eddy lived at Rawson's home in Lynn, Massachusetts, for two months in 1872. Nearly a decade later in 1881, Rawson was part of a group of eight students who resigned from Eddy's Christian Scientist Association. She, along with her sister, Miranda Rice, continued to practice mental healing but in direct competition with Christian Science.
