Biographical or historical data
Dr. Alpha Omega Campbell (1899-1977) received his medical degree in Boston, Massachusetts in 1913 and began practicing medicine in North Florida, serving white and black patients. In 1947 he opened a twenty-bed hospital next door to his residence, one of the region's first privately owned and operated facilities serving blacks. The hospital closed in 1956 after Dr. Campbell was convicted of manslaughter and served three years in prison.
