Alamance-Caswell Medical Society (1929)

The Bee (Danville, Virginia) 14 August 1929

Yanceyville, N. C. Aug 14 (1929) - Dr. John W. Harris, Wisconsin, a former citizen of Rockingham County, was the principle speaker here last night at a meeting of the Alamance-Caswell Medical Society, which held a stated gathering on the county house lawn. Dr. Harris handled a subject of medical interest in a masterful way, and attending physicians were enthusiastic in their praise.

The exercise began on court house lawn where the Parent-Teacher association of the local school high school had prepared a bountiful feast, spread out on long table: conspicuous in the menu was the famed Country Line Hills boiled hams, set about with tenderest of fried chickens with all other real eatable to match.

Following this meal, more than forty doctors, hailing from Caswell, Alamance, Rockingham, and Durham counties and Danville, Virginia under the lead of Doctor S A Malloy, society president, repaired to the court room where the professional exercises were held. In addition to the address of Doctor Harris, a number of the disciples of Aesculapius made timely talks.

A feature of the evening, was the presence of Dr. John A. Pinnix, of Anderson township who for more than fifty years has been active in his profession.
