Photograph of Harry Weldon Osgood of Pittsfield, Ellsworth, and Bangor, Maine; 1894 Graduate of Colby College at Waterville, Maine; 1898 Boston University School of Medicine

Photograph of Harry Weldon Osgood of Pittsfield, Ellsworth, and Bangor, Maine, presumably taken upon his graduation from Colby College in the Class of 1894.  The photograph was taken by the Preble & Jordan studio of 66 Main Street, Waterville, Maine.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

From birth information in an obituary in the Colby Alumnus, Volume 21, No. 1, October 1938: Harry Weldon Osgood was born May 5, 1871 at Pittsfield, Maine, the son of Irving Osgood and Awilda M. (Foster) Osgood.  He graduated from Colby College in 1894 and Boston University School of Medicine in 1898.  He first practiced medicine in Ellsworth, Maine, and for the rest of his career at Bangor, Maine.

Harry married Blanche Lillian Reeves at Ellsworth, Maine, on June 14, 1904; they had a daughter Constance.  Harry was the City Physician for Bangor, Chairman of the Bangor Board of Health and, for a time, the State Medical Director for Maine.  He died in 1938 and is buried in the Woodbine Cemetery at Ellsworth, Maine, with Blanche, who died in 1951.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

  1. Hi Pam! We recently were gifted some interior house photos taken by his father of the wedding rooms they were married in here in Ellsworth at Historical society. I am searching for photos of Harry Osgood, Blanche Reeves Osgood, and family
