The Medical Department


Up thru the early 1990's, a medical treatment facility was maintained on the AO Southbridge Campus. Shown above is the AO Medical Department as it appeared in 1920 (Courtesy of Jacob Edwards Library and the Southbridge Historical Society).

Dr. Roger Allen provided the following to me, which was the text of a speech he gave in 1950, honoring the late Dr. Theordore Story. Click here to read his tribute to Dr. Story.

Learn more about Dr. Allen from a Joe Capillo article of 1972.
