The son of Mary Ann Pinner and Julius Dosher of Southport, North Carolina, Dr. Dosher graduated from the Maryland College of Pharmacy in 1900 and the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1903. He returned home from college to set up a medical practice. He married Grace Kennard later that same year and they had one daughter, Little Grace.

In 1919 Dr. Dosher was named Acting Assistant Surgeon in the United States Public Health Service and served in Southport at the Quarantine Station, a position he held until he retired in 1937. Located on pilings in the Cape Fear on the shore of Bay Street across from the Brunswick Inn, the Quarantine Station was a shelter used for screening sailors aboard incoming ships. Dr. Dosher and his nurse treated sick sailors and disinfected the men and their vessels.

In 1936 Dr. Dosher was elected to the American College of Physicians and Surgeons, an honor comparable to the Distinguished Service Cross in the Army.

Dr. Dosher died on January 10, 1939 at the age of 60 from complications related to pulmonary tuberculosis that he acquired in 1937.
