International pocket medical formulary used by three doctors in Spring Hope, North Carolina.


Biographical/historical information

Dr. W. M. Edwards worked for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad and performed surgeries in towns along the line. Dr. Vann would drop ether for him at these surgeries.

Dr. Julius R. Vann was a physician in the U.S. Navy during World War I. He may have attended Jefferson Medical College but lived in Fayetteville before moving to Spring Hope.

Dr. Julian M. Warren met Dr. Vann when he began his Spring Hope practice. Other doctors practicing in the area at the time (1957) include Dr. Willis (who was in failing health) and Dr. Julian Brantley. Brantley was a cousin of Warren, as their mothers were sisters. Julian Brantley's father, Dr. Hassel Brantley, delivered Warren. The father-son Brantley shared a large office in Spring Hope, and Dr. Warren rented space out of this office when he first started in town; the elder Brantley was deceased at this point. Dr. Lowery and Warren built a clinic in Spring Hope on Branche and Ashe Streets in 1961. The two doctors knew each other from time spent in Durham.
