1822 - 1887

Although Dr. Dorsch, born in Bavaria, was a competent physician with degrees from Munich & Vienna, he was exiled when the 1848 Germain Revolution failed. In Monroe his love of freedom led him to make this home a station on the Underground Railroad, later willing it for use as a Public Library.

He was a Delegate to the first Republican Party Convention, Elector from Michigan and member of the State Board of Education. As a U.S. Pension Board Surgeon he devised charts long used to trace a bullet's course in the human body.

He established in Monroe's marshes the spectacular American Lotus and was noted as a poet and painter.
