Dr. I. Platt Foot
On the third page of this ANNUAL we print an interesting sketch of the "Dog Train of the Northwest," driven by Dr. Lyman Foot, of the U.S. Army, father of Dr. I.P. Foot, when stationed on the then extreme frontier at Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. It was out on this rugged frontier, with these surroundings, that I. Platt Foot was born, in September, 1825.
Growing to young manhood I. Platt Foot was sent east for his education. He graduated from Hobart College, Geneva, in 1847, and the Cleveland Medical College in 1850, practiced at Blackwell's Island, was appointed assistant surgeon on the Panama Railraod, and subsequently settled in Plattsburgh, where he passed a long and successful professional career, and died in 1880.
He served as assistant surgeon at the Plattsburgh Barracks, and in 1863 was appointed enrollment surgeon for the 16th district.
