Country doctors served people in many parts of the country during the first part of the 20th Century. They often went by horseback or with a wagon/buggy to see their patients. They carried a bag of medical instruments and were often paid for their services with farm produce, chickens and the like.

Our winners particularly mentioned some of the early doctors in Orofino such as Papenhagen, Horsewell and Fairly.
