Woodson Washington Spicer, M.D.  Upon completing his course in medicine Doctor Spicer returned to his native McLean County and for twelve years has carried the burdens of a large professional practice at Calhoun and in the country vicinity.

Doctor Spicer was born on a farm in McLean County, March 8, 1880, a son of George W. and Mary Angeline (Moore) Spicer, the former a native of Owen County and the latter of McLean County.  Doctor Spicer spent his early life on his father’s farm, attending in the meantime the county schools.  He was a student in the Sacramento Normal in his native county, also in the Western Kentucky Normal School, spent four years in Transylvania University at Lexington, and from there entered the Hospital College of Medicine at Louisville, where he was graduated July 30, 1908.  Since then he has given his uninterrupted time and energies to his medical practice, his able talents have been ripened by experience, and he stands in the front rank of McLean’s County’s medical profession.

Doctor Spicer has some interests in the farming community of his native county.  He is a Master Mason, a member of the Christian Church, a democrat, and is affiliated with the McLean County, State and American Medical associations.  In 1911 he married Miss Madeline Sebald, of Calhoun, and they have one daughter, Alice Loraine.
