This guy was interesting…. and not because he lived to age 91.
Dr. A. F. Fortune went to Greensboro in 1900. By 1902, he and 6 other doctors opened Greensboro’s first hospital. He delivered over 6,000 babies including 2 sets of triplets. I’m sure there are plenty of other doctors who have delivered many, many more but I get the impression from reading this obit that he was already a busy man in addition to his normal ob-gyn practice.
This is from the Thrift Shop find we made on 02 March 2013 at Elsie’s Thrift Shop in Mt Gilead, Montgomery County, North Carolina. Please do not assume I got the transcription correct. I seem to be terrible at deciphering others handwriting. lol
