Famous celebrities from Wellesley
Dr. Joseph Murray
More than 50 years ago in Boston, Dr. Joseph Murray carried out the first successful kidney transplant in December 1954 and was awarded the Nobel Prize for his success in 1990.
Murray holds the Nobel certificate that he keeps in his home office.
The surgeon has lived in Wellesley for more than 50 years and said he enjoys going on walks near his home at Abbott Road. To live in Wellesley is a tremendous privilege, he said. Every time the seasons change, you just get revivified.
