A Physician's Mission

Record #:
Abram van Wyck Budd received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania and could have had a good life as a big city doctor. Yet he chose to come to Egypt in Chatham County in 1855 as a coal company surgeon. He later served in the Confederate Army, returning after the war to Egypt, where for the next sixteen years he traveled the backwoods, treating those too poor to help themselves. He later moved to Lockville on the Cape Fear River, where he died.
