History of National Doctors' Day

History of National Doctors' Day

Doctors' Day National Doctors’ Day commemorates the date that Crawford W. Long, MD, first administered ether as a surgical anesthetic. The occasion was first observed in 1933 by Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, to express appreciation for the lifesaving work of doctors everywhere. In 1990, President George H. W. Bush recognized the numerous contributions of physicians by formally designating March 30 as National Doctors’ Day.

The day is traditionally celebrated by sending a written expression of gratitude to a physician and also through the display of red carnations, the symbolic flower of Doctors’ Day.
