SAMUEL GARLAND SLAUGHTER {1861-1915)
Samuel Garland Slaughter was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, on 10 July 1861, the son
of John F. and Mary Harker Slaughter. He was educated at the Bellevue and Episcopal
High Schools and did his undergraduate work at the University of Virginia. His medical
degree was obtained from the University of the City of New York, followed by practice
in the Bellevue Hospital of New York City. He married Mary W. Richardson, of
Monroe, Louisiana, on 26 November 1890.
Dr. Slaughter went on to general practice in Superior, Wisconsin, and later returned to
Lynchburg in 1894, where he set up a general practice and was assistance surgeon to the
N & W Railroad. In 1907, he established the Physico-therapeutic Institution in
Lynchburg. Dr. Slaughter gave up his general practice to specialize in electrotherapeutics.
His death on 17 November 1915 was due in part to x-ray burns which he had received
some years prior. S.G. Slaughter was buried in Spring Hill Cemetery.
