Biographical Note

Caleb Winslow, a Quaker physician, was born in Hertford, Perquimans County in 1824. He moved to Baltimore, Maryland, in 1866, and died there in 1895. Son of Nathan and grandson of Caleb Winslow, he traced his ancestry back to William Bundy who died in 1692 in Perquimans County. Caleb probably attended the Academy at Belvidere, and may have gone to a the Friends' Boarding School in Providence, Rhode Island. He was graduated from Haverford College, Pennsylvania, in 1842, and also from the University of Pennsylvania in 1849, receiving his medical degree from the latter. Apparently he was an excellent physician, gaining prominence in Perquimans County as well as in Baltimore. After he had moved to Baltimore, he was called back to North Carolina many times to tend various patients. Caleb Winslow was married to Jane Paxson Parry on January 14, 1852, and they had eight children, only three of which lived to adulthood. The eldest child, Randolph, the donor of the bulk of these papers, died in 1937 at the age of 84.
