A Doctor on the “Miami”

Born in Kendall, N.Y., William Barrow Mann (about 1835-1920) graduated from the University of Buffalo in 1861 and enlisted in the Union navy. He received an appointment as an assistant surgeon, and served as a doctor aboard the “Miami.”

His likeness is new to my collection, and now available on PinterestTumblr, and Flickr.
