Richard Thomas Gott, of Poolesville, Maryland, physician and surgeon and one of the oldest general practitioners of medicine in that town, sub-registrar of the State Board of Health for the third district of Montgomery county, Maryland, is a native of Poolesville, born October 17, 1844, son of Thomas Norris and Eleanor White Chiswell Gott. On both sides he is a descendant of old Scotch families that came to America in 1760 and were among the original settlers of Montgomery county, Maryland.

Dr. Gott received his early education in public schools at Poolesville, and his higher education at Columbian (now George Washington) University at Washington, D.C., where he was a student during the years 1863-64. In 1865 he entered the medical department of the University of Maryland, and graduated M.D. in 1868.

After graduation, he entered general practice at Poolesville, remained there until 1875, then went to Eutaw, Alabama, and practiced five years and then returned to Poolesville. For almost forty years, Dr. Gott has been a faithful and conscientious worker in the ranks of the medical profession, and in all respects he has maintained the integrity of his diploma and has earned the retirement from the arduous work of the profession he seeks.

He is member of various professional organizations, and for many years has been medical examiner for some of the strongest life insurance companies of the land. He has not been ambitious of political advancement or sought a higher place in his profession than that which comes from an honest and successful practice and the respect of his professional associates and the general public, and this he has achieved.
