Dr. W. E. Bright
Following a lingering illness, Dr. W. E. Bright, 66, of North Hampton who had practiced medicine in Clark County for the last 35 years, died at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the City Hospital. Although in failing health for a year and a half, Dr. Bright continued in his practice until less than two weeks ago. He was taken to the hospital last Thursday. Dr. Bright was born May 26, 1866, near Christiansburg, Ohio, then called Addison. He attended the common schools there, graduating from the Christiansburg High School in 1888. From 1894 until 1897 he attended the Ohio Medical University, now a part of Ohio State University, graduating in March of 1897. He began his practice in the same year of his graduation at New Lebanon, Ohio, and after three months there, moved to North Hampton in September of 1897, where he practiced until only a short time before his death. While he maintained his offices in North Hampton, he practiced general medicine throughout the county. He was a member of the visiting staff of the Springfield City Hospital, and was a member of the Ohio State Medical Association, the American Medical Association, and the Clark County Medical Society, in which he served in various offices. In 1890 he became a member of the Mt. Olivet Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons of Christiansburg, and in 1899 became a member of White Star Lodge, No. 292, Knights of Pythias of North Hampton. He was also a member of the North Hampton Junior Order United American Mechanics. His mother, Susan C. Bright of Christiansburg, who is 88 years of age; one brother, Alvin J. Bright, of Christiansburg; and a son, Charles H. Bright, of North Hampton, survive. His wife died nine years ago. The body was taken to the Richison funeral home in St. Paris. Funeral arrangements have not been completed, but it is expected that the fraternal organizations of which he was a member, and the Clark County Medical Society, would take part in the services.
