Spotted in the lobby of our local hospital. Dr. Alexander seemed like a cool guy. I tend to think the early citizens of my town usually were upright folks. The plaque reads:
George Everett Alexander, M. D., was born and schooled in the East. He received his M.D. from Buffalo University in 1885.
He married Miss Arlene Harris in 1889. In 1892 he moved his ailing wife to Fort Collins, CO. She passed away the following year and he moved to Castle Rock.
Dr. Alexander practiced here from 1893 until his death in 1947. From 1902 on he lived and practiced at 203 Cantril Street, a home that is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. He was nationally recognized as one of the five longest practicing physicians in the United States.
Dr. Alexander was a friend, counselor, advisor, community historian, banquet toastmaster, and leading citizen.
