- Item Type:
- This 1891 photograph depicts Dr. Duncan Marquis, who has been described (by M. Smyth) as "probably the most beloved doctor the village ever had." A native of the village, he left to pursue his medical education but later returned to set up practice in the village of his youth. He was regarded as an expert and visited major hospitals in New York; he was evidently successful in Mount Pleasant, where he was able to buy Alvah Townsend's mansion for $12,000.
