Richard Nevitt fled Savannah Georgia at the age of 14 after being drafted by the Confederacy. Settling first in Quebec, he studied medicine then signed up as a doctor with the RCMP's famous “Great March West” of 1874. Dr. Nevitt's care of local natives won him their respect; and his many sketches created a valuable historical record of the peaceful settling of the West. Nevitt continued practising medicine in Toronto, helping found the Women's Medical College and delivering a baby a day for the rest of his life.
