Dr Harr was my doctor as a child the thing I remember most was his Arrowhead collection. My grand father was a farmer in Pitt county and one of his fields was the site of an old Indian village after he plowed the field every year dr Harr and some of his friends would go search it for arrowheads and other relics.

He was my pediatrician as well, from around '68 up. I remember the building and remember that my Mom said that he couldn't run the elevator very well. In those days there was an elevator operator. When the operator wasn't there, Dr. Haar would run it. According to mom, he could never stop it right on the floor. Always above or below. I remember many shots in that office. I remember that he'd give me butterscotch candy after. I also remember that you could see the clock in the courthouse tower from his open office window. We used to call it "Dr. Haar's clock". The picture is something. I really thought he was older than that.. Funny how things appear when we're little.

Yes the pediatrician is Dr. Frederick B. Haar who was my childhood physician. This photo is from his original office which was up several floors in a triangle-shaped building near downtown Greenville NC. The building no longer exists. I remember as a child getting off the elevator, turning left and walking down the hall. When you opened the door to his office, the first thing you saw was this large desk where his receptionists sat and then that looming clock on the wall. His examination rooms (2 of them) were to the left and the waiting room was to the right. Seems the examination tables had orange vinyl on them. Dr. Haar later moved to his final location in a smaller one-story brick building across the street from The Joyner Library. the photo really brought back some memories.
