Book on long-time Marshall doctor available

MARSHALL, ILL. — Dr. George T. Mitchell’s first book, “Dr. George: An Account of the Life of a Country Doctor,” is now available for purchase at Marshall Public Library, 612 Archer Ave., in Marshall, Ill.

George T. Mitchell, M.D., was born and lived most of his life in Marshall where his father came to practice medicine in 1907. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University, Dr. Mitchell went on to receive a medical degree from the George Washington University School of Medicine.

After completing an internship at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, he volunteered for service in the medical corp of the Army Air Corps in early 1941.

Following nearly five years of military service, Mitchell returned to his hometown in 1946 to start a practice as a country doctor in his father’s old office.  Mitchell died in Marshall in 2006.

The Friends of the Library are selling the soft cover books for $16. For more information contact the library at 217-825-2535.
