Meet James Craik: George Washington’s Doctor

Thursday, February 28, 2019

Tom Plott, interpreter at Mount Vernon, will portray Dr. James Craik, Physician General of the United States and George Washington’s close friend and personal physician. Dr. Craik will discuss how to become a doctor in the 18th century and the “newest” treatments for soldiers of the Revolutionary War. He will also share his doctor’s box of medical instruments and secrets of the president’s health. The lecture corresponds to the special exhibit Every Necessary Care and Attention: George Washington and Medicine.
