The History of National Doctors' Day
The first Doctors' Day observance was on March 30, 1933, as a local
celebration in Winder, Ga., by Eudora Brown Almond (wife of Dr. Charles
B. Almond) to mark the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia
in surgery. On March 30, 1958, a resolution commemorating Doctors'
Day was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1990, legislation
establishing Doctors' Day was approved, and on Feb. 21, 1991, President
George H. W. Bush signed the resolution designating March 30 as National
Doctors' Day. The first National Doctors' Day was celebrated that year.
