Dr. Walter Reed of Murfreesboro was in Cuba in 1900 and discovered yellow fever to be transmitted by a particular kind of female mosquito, single-handedly abolishing the health threat of the disease. His home in Murfreesboro is set to be restored and used as a Satellite Medical Center. Reed, born in Virginia in 1851, courted and married Emily Lawrence of Murfreesboro. Reed died in 1902.
