Hathaway, Marcus M., druggist and physician, a son of James and Lydia G. (Brown) Hathaway, was born in Fall River, December 17, 1841. He obtained his education in the Fall River public schools and early in life carefully learned the drug business with P. S. Brown, the oldest druggist in Fall River. In 1871 he entered into partnership with Mr. Brown under the firm name of P. S. Brown & Co., which name has since been retained, although Mr. Brown is now deceased. Having taken a partial course in medicine in the University of Vermont, he began to practice as early as 1872 and has since followed the profession. Many of his patients come from among the poor and unfortunate classes in whose condition and material welfare he has always shown a kind and sympathetic interest. In his chosen field of work Dr. Hathaway has accomplished much good for his fellowmen and he is highly esteemed for his unostentatious acts of charity and benevolence. He devotes all his time to his business and profession. He is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
