  • Biographical / Historical Note
     

    Medical students first paid a matriculation fee to the school, and would then take the matriculation card with them to purchase lecture tickets for each course directly from the professors. Courses that involved more materials and equipment, such as chemistry, surgery, and anatomy, tended to charge higher fees to cover the professors’ expenses. The students also paid fees to the demonstrator of anatomy, defraying costs for dissection material. Where tickets formed the basis of admission to a course, they were examined by an “usher” stationed at the entrance of a lecture room. Most medical schools did not abandon lecture tickets until the late 19th century.

    Henry Battle Marriott was born 5 February 1863 to Dr. Robert Henry and Temperance “Tempe” Ann (Battle) Marriott in Battleboro, North Carolina. He married Emily Pippen in 1887 and they had Mary, Elizabeth, Emily, Tempe, and Robert. Marriott attended the University of Maryland in the early 1880s. After earning his degree, he returned to the Battleboro area. Between Henry and his father, Robert, they served the medical needs of the community for over 85 years. Henry died 24 October 1942 in Nash County, North Carolina.
