Join us at the Rockville Senior Center or tune in on Zoom to hear speaker Clarence Hickey share how he researched the life and medical career of local 19th century physician, Dr. Stonestreet,eventually walking in the doctor’s footsteps and trekking in the 21st century where the doctor trod in the 19th century. With history in hand, Clarence has taken the doctor on 21st century house calls to private community homes, senior centers, public and private organizations, schools, libraries, community events, historic sites, and to Civil War reenactments.
