Abstract:
In 1936, Dr. Milton Quigless, a young African American man, graduated from medical school and moved to Tarboro, a segregated town lacking a doctor for African American patients. He travelled around the county to treat patients until he was able to open the Quigless Clinic in 1947, an institution devoted to treating African Americans who were denied at 'white hospital'. The clinic operated until 1975 when Quigless was forced to close it due to building code violations.
