Permanent Exhibit:


The Doctor Is In

When we pulled together the information on Stone Mountain’s doctors for the original exhibit, we missed one – Dr. James McCurdy.  Son of Dr. Bill McCurdy and brother to Dr. Willis McCurdy, Dr. James Mc Curdy served our country  during World War II in the Pacific Theater.  He would die in a car accident a few short years after his return home. Through the thoughtfulness of board member Jim McCurdy, we are fortunate to have had access to his letters written home mostly to his father during the war.

His career and accomplishments are the focus of interpretive panels that chart his experience as he grew from small town doctor to a military doctor and surgeon and to some degree an ambassador for our country.
