Walter Brockett Holcombe1

b. 26 February 1916, d. 6 December 1984
     The following taken from the Connecticut Veterinary Medicine Association bulletin which quoted from the Danbury News-Times of October 22, 1977:

When Dr. Walter B. Holcomb closed the door behind him as he left his office last Tuesday, he closed the door on a bit of local history that stretches back to the turn of the century. Holcomb, 61, sold his beterinary clinic on New Street and retired after 40 years as a veterinarian - 37 of them in the New Street facility started in 1904 by the late Dr. Valentine Knapp. Holcomb retired "because I would just like to: he said. He is a shy, quiet man with large, beefy hands that seem to belong to a laborer or someone not involved with delicate animal surgery. Wehn he joined Knapp in 1938 he became part of one fo the only two veterinary clinics in the area.

Dr. Holcomb and Dr. Knapp ran a "mixed practice" then, large or small animals. In 1940 Dr. Knapp died and Dr. Holcomb became sole owner. He removed the large animal operating table and most of the large animal stalls, adding some more kennel and expanding the building. Today the facility could kennel 70 dogs and cats.

Dr. Holcomb stated, "I haven't the faintest idea" how many animals he has treated in the past 37 years. he sorted throught a desk drawer and came out with a numbered certificate book which showed he spayed more than 12,000 dogs. And he can't even begin to count the number of times he's been kicked by hourses or cows, bitten by dots or scratched by cats - or how many tons of meat he's inspected at Danbury's two shaughter houses before both went out of business in the early 1960's.

Walter Holcomb has been a member of the Association since August 1940; president in 1953 and has continued to support the activities of the Association by a near perfect attendance at continuing education programs and quarterly meetings. We wish you well, Dr. Holcomb. Mrs. Holcomb lives at 25 Sil-Cam Drive, Danbury, Connecticut.

The Social Security Death Index disagrees, showing the death as Oct 1984.
