Daniel Lucius ‘Doc’ Adams
Nov. 1, 1814 – Jan. 3, 1899

A picture is worth a thousand words and the visuals gathered here paint a picture of Doc’s time and the efforts to spread the word of his imortance as afounding father of America’s pastime. From Doc’s uniform buttons and corrspondences to the exhibition of his “Laws od Base Ball” at the Library of Congress, it spans almost two centuries..

A rare family interview of Doc’s youngest son, Roger Cook Adams, provides an interesting perspective.

Marjorie Adams was interviewed on numerous occasions to discuss her great-grandfather. Some of those (including video) are highlighted here. All of Marjorie’s interviews are collected on our “Marjorie Adams In Doc Adams” page.

Marjorie Adams was interviewed on “Genesis with Ian Kahanowitz” on the Heavy Hitter Network. She talked about Doc Adams, his life’s accomplishments and contributions to the game of baseball. It’s a great and unique opportunity to hear Marjorie talk about great-grandfather, a founding father of baseball.
