Reflections of Fifty Years
Dr. John “Jack” Norris graduated from Dartmouth College in 1925 and began his medical practice in New London in 1932. In 1937 he had an extraordinary opportunity to join the medical staff of Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, NY, where he was a medical director and respected innovator for nearly 30 years. Dr. Norris retired to New London in 1969. Always a visionary, he saw a growing need for home health care services in our region. Although some disputed the need, Dr. Norris remained steadfast. The result was the founding of Kearsarge Visiting Nurse Association in 1970, now Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice.
