This collection consists of a photocopy of the typewritten Biography of Dr. and Mrs. A. S. N. Dobson of Limestone R.F.D. Tenn. According to the title page, Dobson wrote the biography between 1910 and 1914, and his son, Roy Calvin, edited the document in 1915. The Dobson autobiography covers aspects of Dobson's life from his conscription into the Confederate army in 1862, through his postwar career as a medical doctor in the Broylesville area. Inserted at the conclusion of the biography are genealogies of the Dobson and McGaughey families.
Margie Wilson, one of Dr. Dobson's granddaughters, gave a photocopy to Kyle McQueen of Broylesville, Tennessee after he purchased her grandfather's house. McQueen allowed the Archives of Appalachia staff to make a copy of the Dr. and Mrs. A. S. N. Dobson autobiography in November 1982.
