Celebrating 60 Years as a Middlebury Lion and 98 Years of Life with Dr. Ray Collins
By Cookie Steponaitis
   Ray Collins was born in Brookline, Massachusetts in 1914 and grew up in a family of five children. His father Ray Williston Collins was a starting pitcher for the Boston Red Sox from his debut on July 19, 1909 to his last game in October 1915. Batting and throwing left handed, Ray was a member of the 1912 Red Sox world champion team. Ray Collins was raised by parents who had a passion for life and a drive to succeed and went into medicine half because of his own dreams and half at the urging of relatives. “I got good grades and watched how the doctors in my community had good standing, had the trust of the people and were involved in many phases of local life,” reflected Dr. Collins. “Attending college at the University of Vermont I started out training for being a general practitioner and eventually was able to work into general surgery. I found myself wanting to see the people through their illnesses and to be a part of the health and well-being of my patients.”
