Physicians through our History

The physician stories that follow are those for which we have reliable information, either from, for example, Littleton Hospital archives, personal interviews, newspapers, and other publications. Our focus is limited to the physicians who spent most of their career at Littleton Hospital (also known as Littleton Regional Hospital; now known as Littleton Regional Healthcare). Prior to the founding of Littleton, NH in 1784, there were no physicians residing in the area. According to the Gazetteer of Grafton County, one Dr. White, a physician from Newbury, VT, rode into town on horseback two or three times each year to treat patients by bleeding and blistering, the vogue back in the day. During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, a number of physicians came to town. Their medical educations ranged from physician relatives tutelages, to Ivy League medical school educations. Dr. Adams Moore stood out among these early physicians. He had a reputation as a true scholar not only in medicine, but in the fields of science, literature, politics, and current events. It was common knowledge that Dr. Moore knew more about his adopted town of Littleton than any other person; during the last years of his life, he devoted himself to preparing a history of the town. There are many other physicians who had practiced in Littleton who were known well beyond the limits of the North Country of New Hampshire.
