Dr. Bryan's Clinic



Dr. E.C. Bryan's Clinic


It is said that Dr. Bryan delivered most of Neosho County.

Dr. E.C. Bryan was a tremendous example of a rural health care provider in the days preceding HMOs, insurance-run health care, and mechanized medicine. Dr. Bryan ran his practice from a small clinic on Main Steet, Erie, Kansas and from a black bag he carried in his car. Yes, he did make house calls and he delivered many babies in the homes of his patients.
The exhibit includes furnishings and medical instruments from "Doc" Bryan's office, as well as his medical certificates and diplomas. The "office" will be of interest to budding physicians, natives of Neosho County, and anyone interested in mid-20th century medical equipment.
