On March 30, 1933, Eudora Brown Almond honored physicians like her husband, Dr. Charles B. Almond. She sent greeting cards to doctors both active and retired. Twenty- five years after the first celebration, the United States House of Representatives adopted a resolution to commemorate Doctors’ Day. Doctors’ Day was signed into law on October 30, 1990, and now celebrated with greeting cards and red carnations.
