Foreword
My interest in the history of medicine in McLennan County began in the mid 1970s while researching my great-great-grandfather, Thomas L. Willis, MD, DDS. He received his education at the Medical College of Georgia and the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. He and his family moved to Waco from Pike County, Alabama in 1866 and resided with his first cousin, James Madison Willis, MD, one of the founders of the Waco Medical Association.
My latest interest in the subject began in late 2014 when I visited the McLennan County Archives and saw the many volumes listing the names of the physicians in the county. This 1875 volume is the second earliest known register at the archives.
Appreciation is expressed to Rita Balentine Hogan for encouraging me to complete the transcription of the 1875 volume which was in a completely different format than that of the 1874 volume. This volume contained many diplomas in Latin which unfortunately I was not able to read. It also contained the names of a number of early African-American physicians, female physicians, a graduate of a medical college in China, a graduate of a medical college in Syria, many early dentists, and two pharmacists. I felt that the most interesting entry was for a graduate of the New York College of Magnetics whereby the physician was “duly qualified to administer Sun, Baths, Water Baths, Massage, Mental and Psychological Forces, Electricity, Sun Charged Substances and other refined natural agencies for upbuilding the system.”
Trudy C. McGuire and Kerry McGuire, staff members at the McLennan County Archives, again provided wonderful assistance with this handwritten volume. I am indebted for their suggestions. Many of the names in this 1875 volume were difficult to decipher.
In 2016, the McLennan County Medical Society will be celebrating its 150th anniversary. Appreciation is expressed to Bradford W. Holland, MD for asking me to serve on its sesquicentennial committee. It is my hope that this transcription of the 1875 volume will help preserve some of the history and heritage of the pioneer physicians of McLennan County.
Dedicated in memory of
Thomas L. Willis, MD, DDS
(1824-1889)

James Madison Willis, MD
(1822-1907) and

Joel Selman Willis, MD
(1849-1886)
