Daniel Frank Davis Russell, ca. 1889

Contributed by Leeds Historical Society


This is a photo of Dr. Daniel Frank Davis Russell as a young boy, born Sept 2, 1879 to Alonzo Proctor Russell and Mary Ann Goddard Richardson Russell.

After a lifetime of practicing bedside medicine in Leeds, he died in 1975. The D.F.D. Russell Medical Center is named after him. His impact on the community is immeasurable, serving not only as a healer par excellence, but as a town officer.

Many stories are told of his committment to the health of this town. He stayed by the bedside of many a sick or dying patient through the long nights, back in the days without antibiotics, modern facilities and effective methods of surgery.
