Dr. Rathbun (1913-2015) graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1939 with a specialty in obstetrics and gynecology. After serving in World War II, he was recruited by the Norburn Clinic in Asheville, NC in 1947. Later, he established a private practice in obstetrics and gynecology until his retirement. Among his many career accomplishments was the establishment of Asheville's first prenatal clinic for indigent women. He believed that everyone should have access to excellent medical care, regardless of race or economic status. Recognized by his colleagues for his ability to handle difficult obstetrical and surgical cases, he was elected Chief of Staff at both Mission and St. Joseph's Hospitals.
