Widely Known Physician, Dr. A. L. Lincecum, Dies
EL CAMPO, Texas (AP) - Dr. A. L. Lincecum, last surviving member of the Baylor Medical School's first graduating class and widely known country doctor for 5o years, died Monday. He was 91.
Moments after his daughter, Mrs. Ruth Crosby, a want ads employee for the Houston Post, learned of his death at his isolated ranch near El Campo, her husband, certified public accountant T. A. Crosby, 64, suffered a fatal heart attack.
Dr. Lincecum set up practice in Wharton County a few years after his graduation in 1903 from the medical school. He retired in 1953 and devoted himself to his role of "roving reporter" for KULP radio station in El Campo until he was paralyzed by a stroke in 1958.
He was a soldier with Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders in the Spanish-American War, got a special Texas Rangers commission to help hunt the bandit Pancho Villa in Mexico after a fellow doctor and friend was killed in a border raid, and served as a combat surgeon in France in World War I.
He is credited with making the first report that the malaria-bearing anopheles mosquito from Mexico was in this country in 1905. He later won recognition for research on bubonic plague.
Funeral services for Dr. Lincecum will be held at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Wheeler Funeral Chapel in El Campo.
In addition to his daughter, he is survived by two sons, Bill Lincecum and Barney Lincecum. Dr. Lincecum's wife, Letha, died in 1959.
