"Douglass C. Ticknor, M. D., of Columbus, Ga., was born at Torch Hill, Muscogee, Co, six miles south of the city of Columbus, on July 31, 1852. He was reared in his rural home, receiving the larger part of his earlier education at the hands of his father, Dr. F. O. Ticknor, noted at that time as a physician, surgeon and litterateur. Young Ticknor was graduated from the Atlanta Medical college with the degree of M. D. in 1876. Immediately after graduation, he located in the city of Columbus, Ga., and entered actively upon the practice of his profession, and continued to do so up to the present time. In the profession his skill and ability are manifest in a large and successful practice and he sustains a very desirable rank among the members of his profession. He is of a progressive, investigating turn of mind and takes great interest in the advancement of the profession. He has been honored by his fellow-citizens at different times by being selected to fill important positions in the city government, notably as president of the Columbus board of health for three years, from 1890 to 1893, and as city physician of Columbus for one term. Dr. Ticknor is a prominent member of the masonic fraternity. He is also a consistent member of the Protestant Episcopal church." [Memoirs of Georgia. Vol. I-II. Atlanta, GA, USA: The Southern Historical Association, 1895, Chapter 6 Muscogee County Sketches, p. 635]
