McMurray Medical History in Nashville
Nashville has never been short on McMurray’s when it comes to the medical field.
Dr. William Josiah McMurray graduated from Vanderbilt as valedictorian. He is listed in Nashville’s first Physician Record Book. William Josiah is the second cousin of my husband’s great grandfather.
Carl S. McMurray, MD, graduated from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in 1917 at the young age of 21. He was mentored by Dr. Matthew Charles McGannon in the practice of surgery. Dr. C.S. McMurray named his first son after Dr. McGannon. My son is Matthew Charles McMurray, III.
Dr. C.S. McMurray went on to become a surgery instructor at Vanderbilt. He also served on the faculty at MeHarry Medical School here in Nashville. Two of his four sons ended up practicing medicine. One of them is my late father-in-law Dr. Matthew Charles McMurray, Sr. Gigi had the unique job of helping “Dr. Mac”, as he was called, close down his practice in 1991.
Dr. Mac was a compassionate practitioner who would have doctored his people for free. He was often paid in livestock or even plants! His practice was located downtown hear the intersection of Broadway and 18th.
