Physician Here and in Newport, of Distinguished Ancestry, Had Served in the War

Dr. Charles D. Easton of 510 Park Avenue, who had practiced medicine in Newport, R.I., for many years and in this city since the Armistice, died yesterday in the Doctor's Hospital after undergoing an operation on Monday. He was 58 years old. A widow, the former Margaret Hays, and two daughters, Polly and Peffy (sic) Easton, survive.
Born in Orange, Mass., a son the late Daniel C. and Florence Leach Easton, Dr. Easton came of distinguished ancestry, his forebears including Roger Williams, founder of Rhode Island, and Nicholas Easton, its first Governor. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Brown in 1899 and his M.D. from Harvard five years later.
At first he practiced only in Newport, where he had many associations. Members of his family had given the Newport Hospital to the city. In the World War period he went to Washington and served in the medical corps of the army with the rank of lieutenant. For the last twelve years he had maintained an office here as well as in Newport. He belonged to the American Medical Association and the Academy of Medicine.
