Litchfield


 

DR. PAUL NATHAN LITCHFIELD was born in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1873. After attending the University of Pennsylvania he graduated from Jefferson Medical College in 1895. He was a general practitioner and was affiliated with Cooper Hospital and the Lakeland Tuberculosis Hospital run by Camden County. Dr. Litchfield was a member of the Camden County Medical Society, the Camden City Medical Society; the American Medical Association, and the Philadelphia Medical Club. He also at one time served as Camden County's coroner.

The 1900 Census shows Dr. Litchfield and his wife Rena at 1123 Kaighn Avenue. By 1906 he had moved to 1100 Kaighn Avenue, the corner of Mount Ephraim and Kaighn Avenues, where he had his medical practice and operated a pharmacy. He remarried in 1907, and was living with his wife Kirstine at the Kaighn Avenue address when the Census was taken in 1910, and when the 1914 City Directory was compiled.

Dr. Litchfield died in 1918. When the 1920 Census was enumerated his widow had moved to Philadelphia. By the mid-1920s Dr. Samuel S. Butler had acquired the property at 1100 Kaighn Avenue. Dr Butler would practice medicine and pharmacy at that address for many years thereafter.
