The first resident physician in Greenwood was Dr. H. J. Thomas. He and his wife located here about 1876. He was a very successful physician with one peculiarity he was never seen without a flower in his buttonhole. He was followed by Dr. G. L. Buland. Dr. Buland, while here, married Miss Bertha Mason and built and lived in the house now occupied by H. F. Stabnow. He also built a drug store and office on the lot where the Gullord Pharmacy now stands and conducted them as long as he lived here. In the days when Bulands lived here there were no automobiles and no very good roads. The doctor travelled with a horse and buggy in the summer and a cutter in the winter. His wife was very active in social affairs, church work and the W. C. T. U. Following him came Doctors Conroy (John), Churchill (Benjamin), Julian and Karl Baker, Hugh Schofield, Frank Kennedy, F. A. Boeckmann, H. A. Schultz, L. P. Gaillardet. The Hub of Clark County (1853 - 1934).
Willie Toburen, working in Buker's camp, had the misfortune Saturday to drive the blade of his ax into his right ankle, making a mean gash the full width of the blade. Dr. Conroy dressed the wound and reports the case doing as well as can be expected. Greenwood Gleaner, 9 Feb 1900.
A large tumor of the neck was successfully removed last Thursday afternoon by Drs. Frank and John M. Conroy and Dr. Hacket. The patient Mrs. O. W. Babcock, of Washburn, a lady seventy-three years old, stood the ordeal without chloroform or ether. A local anesthetic was deemed the safest. Her condition at present is excellent.
