Spartanburg Regional History Museum presents Dr. Lawrence Allen Heavrin: An Autobiography – A model for setting down the records of one’s life

In this presentation, Lawrence Heavrin, physician and author, presents an impressive model of how to record the experiences of one’s life. Larry Heavrin’s massive two-volume work documents the varied experience of an American physician. His military service in the U.S. Navy took him from the Great Lakes to Charleston, South Carolina, where he also attended medical school. In pursuit of his career as a family doctor, he traveled far and wide, from North Carolina to Alaska, finally settling in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Come hear secrets pertaining to valuable family history and how to go about setting down your own family records. In volume one are vivid accounts of his life and work in the several small towns and cities where he practiced. Of special interest are the accounts of his Charleston and Alaska sojourns, as well as the stories and vignettes of various patients, colleagues and friends he met in the course of his long career. Both volumes are enlivened by the inclusion of numerous photographs. They also contain valuable finding aids which make them useful and accessible to a wide reading public.
