Doctor William Curless

From: "Barbara Czerwinski" bczerwin@suddenlink.net

For a historical Truckee, California medical project, I am seeking information about Dr. William Curless (23. Jan. 1823 - 26. Jan. 1898). He was a student at Rush Medical College in 1847. In late 1860's, he came to Truckee as the first Central Pacific Railway physician-surgeon. He remained in Truckee as a CPRR and family practice physician-surgeon for the completion of his career and is buried in the Truckee Cemetery. Do you have any pictures of Dr. Curless during his Truckee time? ...

The CPRR Museum does not have a photograph of Dr. William Curless, but there is one in an article on the Truckee Donner
