Presented by Dr. Lorle Porter.
We are most fortunate to have Dr. Lorle Porter return to our Museum to present not
just one, but two excellent programs for our Fall schedule.
For many years she has been gathering information on one of America's early women doctors, Dr. Jane Payne, who practiced medicine here in Mount Vernon from 1860 until her death in 1882.
Dr. Payne's work and sacrifice here during and after the Civil War was a great blessing and an inspiration to the sick and needy of Knox County.
