Dr. E. A. McVey, who now resides in Lambert, was born in Lafayette County in 1890. While still a child, his family moved to Belen, in Quitman County, where, after practicing medicine for eight years, his father died. After this misfortune, the McVeys moved to Pontotoc, where Eric completed his high school education. After attending the University of Mississippi and the University of Tennessee, he finished his medical course in 1913, and went into his first practice at Seyppel, Arkansas. In 1917, he married Miss Ruth Alvis, of Holly Springs, and returning to Quitman County, located at Lambert, where his success has been conspicuous, particularly in the treatment of pneumonia, the one scourge of that section of the county.

His sincere sympathy enables him to see through the eyes of those whom he seeks to help, to understand their problems and lead them aright in an effort to regain health.

Dr. McVey served two years in the World War.
