Frederick Kit Adams Sr., a Baltimore physician for nearly half-century, died Tuesday at the Meridian Multi-Medical Nursing Home in Towson after a lengthy illness. He was 88.
Services for Dr. Adams were being held today at St. James Episcopal Church, 829 N. Arlington Ave.
Born in Hearne, Texas, Dr. Adams graduated from Howard University in Washington and then attended Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tenn.
Following medical school, he came to Baltimore's old Provident Hospital for his internship. He then opened a private general practice in Sparrows Point. Five years later, he moved his office to Caroline Street in East Baltimore, where he remained for the next 42 years, until his retirement in 1980.
