Dr. Lawrence F. Nelson will be 100 yrs. old on Jan. 19, 2021.  He served Whitewater and the surrounding area for nearly 40 years.  He came to the Whitewater area looking for a place to set up his practice as a General physician and surgeon.  He found the Dr. Meighan was about to move away and that his practice would be open.  Took over his office in the building which now houses The Brass Rail.  Dr. Mucci (a dentist) shared the area.  Dr. Mucci then also moved away and Dr. Charles Thubaville then moved his dentist office into that area.  After several years they both moved into the new “Medical building” on the corner of Main and Fremont streets. He offered Friday night hours and Saturday night hours.  He was always ready to help, ready to listen if you wanted to talk, walk in visits were accepted and you could usually get an appointment the day you called. 

Dr. Nelson retired on June 30, 1991.  I was privileged to work for and with Dr. Nelson over a period of 34 years.  It was an honor to be a part of his office. A card would be appreciated; his address is P.O. Box 118, Whitewater, 53190. Evelyn Schneider
