Born in New Sharon, Maine, on October 31, 1869 to George Eustis Dyer and Betsey Ann Littlefield, John Small Dyer devoted his life to his family, friends, and patients in Maine. He graduated from the Medical School of Maine in 1904. After graduation, he worked as a physician in his hometown from 1904-10. He then relocated to Harmony, Maine and worked there from 1911-18. From 1918 until his death, on July 9, 1922, Dyer worked and lived in Winter Harbor, Maine. He was a member of the Maine Medical Association.

Dyer married Edith Laughton Forbus, daughter of Leonard Cotton Forbus and Grace Welman Laughton, on March 3, 1910. They had one daughter, Madelyn Edith Dyer.

This collection is comprised of a series of photocopied transcripts of typescript excerpts from the diaries and journals of John Small Dyer (June 18, 1904-July 9, 1922). In addition to these excerpts, the collection also contains a small amount of biographical information about John Small Dyer, as well as some information about his daughter Madelyn Dyer Conley, who established a scholarship in her late father's name.
