Other Information:

Dr. Barnett was a classic country doctor who visited patients on horseback or by buggy, and later, by Model T. He was beloved by his patients, many of whom credited him with saving them or their loved ones during the epidemics of the times.

Fellow physicians regarded him as a gifted diagnostician. An Indianapolis surgeon once remarked that if the Homer doctor called to say he was sending over a patient, his staff was instructed to prepare the operating room, as Dr. Barnett was rarely wrong.

Stories of Dr. Barnett’s medical training, career, and family life were published in 2016 in daughter Frances Barnett Macdonald’s The County Doctor’s Youngest Daughter. Copies are available at: http://squareup.com/store/stolen-owl-press
