History of Rural Medicine as Practiced in Stanstead County

June 13th – August 31st 2014

The exhibition focused on the experiences of three doctors who practiced in Stanstead County and neighbouring Vermont at three key stages in the evolution of medicine: Dr. Moses French Colby (1820-1855), Dr. John Child Colby (1905-1926), and Dr. Gilles Bouchard (1963-c.2010).Through the experience of these three, as well as other local doctors, the exhibition explored the history of rural medicine in the context of Stanstead County and the evolving beliefs and attitudes of the local population towards medical science and their own responsibilities with regard to health.
