Rufus Bradbury Foss was born February 12, 1839 in Gilmanton, New Hampshire. He was educated in the schools of his native town and studied medicine with Dr. Nahum Wight before attending two courses at The Medical School of Maine where he received his degree in 1864. He then served as a contract assistant surgeon for two years in the Army.

After the war he opened a practice in Lake Village, New Hampshire before relocating to Farmington, New Hampshire where he remained until 1889. He then moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts where he opened a pharmacy.

Foss died of a cerebral hemorrhage on July 5, 1891 and is buried in Pine Grove Cemetery in Farmington, New Hampshire.  [ad]
