The career of Doctor Campbell was a checkered one and though he may have had faults all concede his virtues were many. He was one of the old settlers of Clyde and contributed to many a sufferer. When called to a sick bed would render all the assistance in his power. He was kind and sympathetic and the hungry never left his door unfed. He had held the position of United States examining surgeon since the war.
