Dr. Roger W. Mann

             Included in this sale are materials from the collection of Dr. Roger W. Mann, well-known Vermont collector and longtime family physician.  He was born in Waterville, VT, in 1911, the son of Merritt H. and Cornelia (Stebbins) Mann.  He graduated from Cambridge High School, received his undergraduate degree from Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, MA and went on to graduate from the University of Vermont College of Medicine. He taught pathology at the Medical School and served on the staff of the Mary Fletcher Hospital while opening his own practice in Waterville. In the early forties, Dr. Mann continued his practice in Jeffersonville and established the R. W. Mann Hospital on Maple Street to better serve the needs of his patients.

             Dr. Mann was instrumental in the development of Smuggler's Notch Ski Ways and the establishment of Lamoille Union High School and Green Mountain Technology and Career Center. He served his community on the Waterville and Lamoille school boards, was a former President of the Vermont Medical Society and the Vermont Heart Association, served on the Vermont Board of Health, and the founding board of Beacon Investments.

             In his retirement, Dr. Mann learned to use the Internet and started an on-line book business, the Yankee Trader, a venture that grew from his lifetime hobby of collecting.  He loved poetry and antique books - a passion shared with his wife, Muriel, hunting and trapping, and the Red Sox.  He and Muriel were married for 74 years, and are the parents of six children and have 20 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren.
