William W. Ruby -- M.D. Diploma
My wife and I were recently eating at the Cracker Barrel in London, Kentucky and on the wall adjacent to our table was what appears to be an original framed "Doctoris in Medicina" Diploma for William W. Ruby.We are told that all the items on the wall are indeed original antiques so if someone out there is descended from this individual, you might want to contact the store to inquire about obtaining the document.
Here's the information I wrote down pertaining to the document (most info in Latin):
-William W. Ruby
-1846 Doctoris in Medicina (M.D. degree)
-Universitatis Buffaloniensis, quae Buffalone in Republic Neo Eboraco (University of Buffalo, Buffalo, New York)
-The document was signed by the various professors and lists there various specialties
