Recommended doctors.

Wilson Daily Times, 1 May 1935.

In 1935, Garner-Tarkenton Drug Store published a list of 27 recommended physicians and surgeons. The final three on the list were African-American — Drs. William A. Mitchner, Joseph F. Cowan, and Boisey O. Barnes (thus, B.O., not T.O.)

  1. Dr. Joseph Cowan delivered me in July 1930 at Mercy Hospital. Dr. B. O. Barnes treated our family also.
