Summary
  • "He was affectionately known by his constituents as "Doc," and may well have been the most popular governor in Indiana's history. Now "Doc" Bowen has given us his story. He writes in rich detail of how hard work and persistence got him into and through medical school, and how his commitment to serving people led him early on to become a beloved family physician in Bremen, then later a respected state legislator and legislative leader in Indiana, and ultimately governor of the state."
  • "Otis Bowen grew up poor in Fulton County, but was rich in the things that count. With the support of his parents, siblings, teachers, and friends, he pursued a dream of becoming a family physician. This book is Otis Bowen's recollection of his hard work and continuous sacrifice to finance his way though medical school."--Jacket
