Judy Carron Collins tells Dear Heartland about her father, Dr. Oscar Carron and his legacy in Perryville.

Our next Dear Heartland comes from Judy Carron Collins in Perryville. Her father Dr. Oscar Carron was responsible for delivering about 6,000 babies in Perry County and other surrounding areas. To most people he was just “Doc” or “Uncle Doc,” but to Judy he was just dad. She tells Dear Heartland about her dad’s legacy in the community.

KRCU's community project Dear Heartland shares your stories about life in southeast Missouri.
