John W. “Doc” Williams

In late 1896, John W. “Doc” Williams answered Moab’s call for a professionally trained physician–a guaranteed annual salary of $150.00. Williams served families, ranches, and farmers across the region, and supplemented his income by owning a general store and selling buggies. His saddle bag, pictured below, has leather pouches with a saddle strap for out-of-the-office calls. View the saddle bag on display at the Moab Museum.
