Although out of print now, the book “We Well Remember“, which was published in 1997 by Sarah Brawley Cheek is available online in several places and is a gold mine of stories relating to the local communities.
Tucked away in a section about health care are several useful passages about Dr. Trivette, including a story or two about house calls he made.
One of these accounts is from Willie Mae Tulbert, his niece. She was apparently employed as what we today think of as a CNA in the clinic for four years while a teenager. I have included a clipping of her account on the sources page and updated the main article with her name listed among the employees.
The book also revealed a new portrait of Dr. Trivette, which I have also included in the original article.
“We Well Remember” is available from The Internet Archive and Digital NC if you would like to read it for yourself.
