Bugbee, Dr. George R.

 
Name:
Bugbee, Dr. George R.

Author:
Bill Hart

Background:

George Bugbee was born in Waterford, Vermont on February 7, 1849, son of Ralph Jr. and Mary (Barker) Bugbee.  When he was just three years old, his father moved his family to Franconia, New Hampshire.  At age eight, his father remarried and he moved the family once again, this time to Littleton, NH.  Young George received his elementary education here and later was a student at the academies in Lancaster, NH, Newbury, VT, and Tilton, NH.  After graduating from Tilton, he entered the medical college at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and the Dartmouth Medical College at Hanover, New Hampshire.  He graduated from Dartmouth with the class of 1872.



Accomplishments:

Dr. Bugbee started his medical practice at Littleton, NH with his father, a well-known physician.  After two years there, he moved to Whitefield, NH where he practiced for about fifteen years. Shortly afterwards, he moved his family to Wausau, WI and re-established his medical practice there until his death.

On December 31, 1881, at Whitefield, NH, he married Miss Emma E. Lindsey.  They had six children. Dr. Bugbee was a member of the White Mountain Medical Society of New Hampshire.

Dr. George Bugbee died on May 14, 1914.  He is buried in Pine Grove Cemetery in Wausau, WI.
