Matthew Bowdish, M.D.

Matthew Stiles Bowdish, M.D. is a boardcertified allergist & clinical immunologist living in Rocklin. He was born in Pasadena to a family that came to Los Angeles in the 1870s. His love of family history came from spending time with his great-grandmother. She was both a family historian and the first female deputy sheriff in the United States.

He received his medical degree at Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine in 2003. He finished his residency in Internal Medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and completed a fellowship in Allergy & Clinical Immunology at Yale University School of Medicine. He holds leadership positions in regional allergy societies and has published scientific journal articles in the field.

Dr. Bowdish is a member of 65 hereditary societies including the National Society Sons of the American Revolution, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of Connecticut and the Order Founders and Patriots among others. He has proven 21 patriot ancestors for the NSSAR.

Dr. Bowdish is married to Kara Lisabeth Netro Bowdish and the couple have two daughters, Olivia and Lily, ages six and three respectively. Apart from genealogy, he is an avid vegetable gardener and fan of the USC football program and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The subject of Dr. Bowdish’s talk will focus on 17th century medicine via a discussion of George Washington’s medical history. Washington suffered from a variety of ailments that shaped the course of his life, the Continental Army and the young United States.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
